What about life inspires you?

Connecting with people. I am constantly inspired by my conversations with people. It could be a five minute conversation with the person at a checkout stand, a long conversation with a friend, or during class time at school with my students. Either way, I continuously learn about myself and others and I love sharing what I learn.

Why did you choose to volunteer with GiveLight Foundation?

After being in the corporate world for more than a decade, I began feeling a need to do something more with my life. After having children, this need grew even stronger. I was looking for something I could involve my kids with as well. With GiveLight, I feel like I have finally found that. My dream is to visit a GiveLight home with my children and husband.

How do you help make a difference by doing what you do here?

I am hoping to help build on top of the current website experience to increase awareness and appeal to potential donors.
