What are your hobbies?

I love to be outside when the weather is nice! I enjoy hiking, riding my bike on the greenbelt, or reading a good book in the park. I recently have started to play pickleball, and I am attempting to learn how to bake.

What is your favorite quote?

“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.” – Vincent Van Gogh

I became fascinated with Van Gogh after visiting the museum dedicated to his work in Amsterdam. I was moved by his story and the way he processed life through his art. This quote has stuck with me, because I believe personal connection and loving others makes this world a better place.

Why do you love BBBS?

I am passionate about the work Big Brothers Big Sisters does because of the empowering impact it has on children. Children need a safe, supportive environment to thrive. Their mentoring program strengthens the community through one match at a time.
