Marketing Manager
Goodwill of North Georgia

YPL: Why did you decide to get involved with United Way of Greater Atlanta’s YPL group?

Trenise: First, I am a great supporter of the work of the United Way, so becoming a donor when I moved to Atlanta was a no-brainer. I decided to join YPL because I was new to the area and thought it would be a good way to engage with other young professionals while giving back.

YPL: What aspect of United Way’s work in the community are you most passionate about supporting?

Trenise: As a child of educators, I truly believe that a good education is the great equalizer. Giving kids the chance to benefit from a good educational foundation is very important to me.

YPL: What is your favorite quote?

Trenise: “Forget the mistake, remember the lesson.”
