I look forward to working with such a dynamic team of people who bring their best to help others every day with such spirit and passion.

What’s your favorite thing about our community?

I love the diversity and the open-minded attitudes of our community.

What would we find you doing when you aren’t at work?

I love to spend time outdoors hiking, biking, going to concerts, travelling and learning.

I love the book Educated, by Tara Westover
