What brought you to the United Way?
I served as a Loaned Executive for the United Way around 2011 and was very involved at that time. Upon completion of that role, my ability to remain involved declined. Last fall, I sat through a United Way Presentation and was reminded how important the United Way is to the families in our communities.
How long and in what capacity have you been involved?
Loaned Executive, Women United Pantry Subcommittee, and Executive Committee.
With the help of donors and volunteers, United Way is able to do so much. What area(s) are you most passionate about?
Providing families with basic needs such as food and hygiene products as well as encouraging children to read and promoting learning.
Tell us more about you! Family, hobbies, interests, etc!
I have been in banking for 24 years. I grew up in Eastern Idaho and moved to Boise in 2004. My husband is a Health teacher in the West Ada School District and we have 2 children that keep us very busy and active. We love to golf, camp, play volleyball, and basketball and just be outside. Throughout the pandemic, I developed a love for working in my yard and have found peace and stillness in working in my flowerbeds.
