Brings to Board

The talents and skills that I will bring to a board are the following: I’m passionate about making a difference in the lives of all youth, I have reach and networks in the community and I understand the inner-working of program development and design.

Hopes for a Board Seat

I have interest in sitting on a nonprofit board because I am a city of Madison resident that is committed to improving my community, our schools and make a small difference by putting in volunteer time in an impactful way.
