What inspired you to become involved with Young Professionals Leaders?

I’ve lived in Atlanta my entire life and I wanted an opportunity to help improve the well-being of others in our community. I studied management in the social sector and worked with several service organizations in college, and I became particularly interested in helping to create equitable education opportunities when I started mentoring first-generation college students a couple of years ago. I’ve been very fortunate to have a lot of support and resources to get to where I am, so I’m grateful to be able to work with United Way to help give others the same opportunities I’ve had.

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

As a healthcare professional, I’m particularly passionate about United Way’s work to help families navigate the healthcare system, since it can be extremely challenging and is integral to providing a stable environment for children to grow up in.

Do you have fun fact or a side hustle (entrepreneurship) that you would like to share with us?

I love skiing and have gone almost every year since I was 2 years old!
