What is your biggest accomplishment? At this point in my life, I hope my biggest accomplishment is yet to come.
If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be? From a quote “surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you …”
Why do you LIVE UNITED? My parents were wonderful role models as a child, giving of their time, talent and finances. In addition to seeing the positive impact in the communities they served, I had the opportunity to observe the happiness helping others actually brought into each of their lives (seems like the best of both worlds, right!). Fast forward into my adult life, I want to make a difference in the community I live in and pay it forward to the next generation.
Why did you get involved with Highlands Circle? To network with other young philanthropists in the community, while learning more about the challenges we face in Buncombe County and how we can be part of the solution.
