What I love about my work:
Daily, I am inspired by nonprofits and organizations making life-changing differences in communities across North Carolina. On top of that, I have the privilege of working with some of the most passionate and dedicated people I know. It is a gift to wake up every day and call this “work”.

When not at my desk:
I stay busy outside of the office spending time with my family and friends. We travel often and spend much of our time sightseeing, trying new restaurants, going to concerts, and exploring museums. When I’m not traveling, you can find me volunteering with my church, reading, or working on my next DIY project.

Favorite thing about North Carolina:
North Carolina is such a geographically diverse state. Whether you’re looking for a big city or a small town, a weekend in the mountains or time on the beach – it’s all at your fingertips.
