What is your favorite part of serving on the Board of Directors?
My favorite part of serving on the Board of Directors for The Greeley Dream Team is seeing the impact of our work on the students in our community.
What influenced you to serve on the Board for the Dream Team?
Access to education and student success (including retention and graduation) are personal and professional goals and values of mine. The Greeley Dream Team shares those values and goals.
What does it mean to you (personally and/or professionally) to serve on the Board?
I am contributing, in a small but meaningful way, to helping those who may not have all the tools or means to succeed in education to do so.
What advice would you give a Dream Team student who one day wants to work in your field?
Express your interest to your teacher, counselor, and professor. You would be surprised as to the level of support you would get.
What did you study in college?
What inspired you to work in your field?
I find that lack of education or knowledge is at the root of most local and global problems. Thus, promoting education, in any field, contributes to making the world a better place.
What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Play Bridge or racquetball. Perform in a play. Spending time with family and friends.
