What will be your role at Girls Inc.?
My role at Girls Inc. will be to support our program partners, volunteers, and girls on the west side of Indianapolis. I get to work with the best people – those who educate and those who give their time to empower girls. We are all striving after the same goal to see girls become healthy, educated, and independent and I get to help see that come to fruition.
What about the Girls Inc. mission appeals to you?
I love that Girls Inc. is helping to change the lives of girls by giving them the tools they need to become strong, smart, and bold women. I was fortunate to have several strong women in my life that encouraged me and helped me believe that I could do anything I set my mind too. I feel blessed to work for an organization that seeks to do the same for girls all over Indianapolis.
What makes you feel strong, smart, and bold?
I feel strong when I stand firm in my beliefs and values and don’t allow myself to compromise even if it means life is easier. I always feel smart when I accomplish something I thought was impossible or too difficult for me to do, especially when it comes to car or home repairs. Just ask my old roommate about a ‘waterfall’ in our basement! Relationships are hard work, but I feel bold when I allow myself to be authentic and transparent in them, especially as a wife, mother, and friend.
