My Early Years
My passion for youth opened many doors during my career in the nonprofit sector. One of my greatest accomplishments was developing the first Case Management Department when opening the LifeChange for Women and Their Children Home in 2013. There I learned the value of holistic recovery programming in a safe, healing environment.
I have led from all levels of organizations. I’ve held titles of Executive Assistant, Lead Case Manager, CEO and Executive Director. But a title is just a title. What they mean is I’ve done everything from developing policies and procedures, managing staff teams, developing websites, raising funds, collaborating with other organizations, and casting vision – to name just a few.
Simply stated: people. I am passionate about the beauty of humanity and value that we are all created equal. I believe there is purpose in all I have experienced – the good and not-so-good – and appreciate the opportunities to use my lessons in the lives of others. I am energized when I get to share what I’ve learned along the journey.
