Starting at a young age, I have always been a strong supporter and advocate for a variety of community organizations, both locally and nationally. I recognized the importance of giving back to those less fortunate than myself and the impact you can have on people’s lives with the smallest gestures of kindness. This has stuck with me to this day and I still maintain involvement with and support of organizations I care about.
As I have grown in my career and life, I have worked with multiple non-profit organizations by serving as a volunteer and/or board member. I have planned large events, managed fundraising initiatives, filed articles of incorporation & annual reports, managed finances and grants, and more. Below are some of my active and past volunteer roles.
