I love how students are at the center of everything we do. I am excited for the opportunity to engage students in service opportunities throughout the Manhattan community and to continue stewarding our relationships with community organizations. Working with and developing alongside the next generation of nonprofit leaders, volunteers and board members also gives me energy and great hope for the future.

More about me

Four out of my five strengths are in the relationship building category, so meeting new people excites me! I love any opportunity to connect with friends and family over a delicious meal, warm cup of coffee or ice cream cone. Which reminds me, I am a firm believer in the fact that is never too cold for ice cream.
