What inspired you to become involved with United Way?

I learned of United Way's work in coordinating efforts between non-profits. One of the things I have always felt was that a lot of the work done in the community was very siloed, and I appreciate United Way's work to pull efforts together.

I have learned about all the different organizations that are doing great work in the community.

What aspect of United Way’s work in the community are you most passionate about supporting?

I am passionate about the leadership programs United Way has. I strongly believe in developing diverse leaders who can help in pushing our community forward.

How have you grown from your involvement with United Way?

I have grown from being a small donor and participating in the United Way programs to joining a couple of the United Way Giving Societies and the Steering Committee of a few of the Leadership Development Programs.

What excites you most about our community’s future?

I am excited by the intentional efforts to collaborate more between organizations. I strongly believe that collaboration between organizations is the only way to make strong lasting change in our community.
