Manager of Urban Programs 

I was brought on board to create and facilitate programming for LVC’s young campers (1st-8th Grade). It is my responsibility to provide programming that is fun, engaging, and meaningful.

Hometown: Racine, WI

Inspirations: Immigrants- people who work tirelessly to attain something that the rest of us were born with. Immigrants learn new languages, figure out how to navigate foreign cities, currencies, economies and cultures all while enduring scorn and prejudice. These communities of individuals inspire me to be a better and more thankful person.

What you like to do in your free time: I love to cook, it is my number one pick-me-up. I also like to stay active. I paddle board and recently began rock climbing. When I have down time, it’s spent watching BBC mystery series, PBS, or listening to NPR :)

How did you get started working with nonprofits? My mom was the director of a small non profit in Racine for many years. The organization served teens and adults with mental illness. As a young person, I had the opportunity to volunteer and work alongside my mom. I saw firsthand how impactful the work of nonprofits can be. Since that time I have worked and volunteered for several non for profit organizations.  

With LVC? While working for Girl Scouts, a friend and previous co-worker told me about Lake Valley Camp. I did my research and loved what I found. As soon as a position became available, I applied!
