Rebecca has dedicated her career to helping children and families in Idaho. As key staff member of United Way, she wants to make the ‘healthy choice’ the ‘easy choice’ for local families. As a mother of two small children, she knows how important healthy choices are for her kids.
“Over the past 10 years my goal has been to create opportunities for people to eat better, move more, get educated and make good financial decisions,” said Rebecca, who serves as United Way’s Director of Community Impact.
It can be easy to say people just need to pull themselves up by the boot straps and take responsibility for themselves, Rebecca says. But what if they don’t have any boots?
“My job is to create ‘community boots’—healthy, affordable foods, access to medical and behavioral health, places to play, affordable education—where families live, work, play and pray,” Rebecca said.
“As a mom of two small children, I am fiercely passionate that all families should be empowered and enabled to live their very best lives. Through United Way, I am able to fight for the people of the Treasure Valley to have the boots they need to improve their health, education and financial stability.”
