Development & Outcomes Associate
Why are you involved with Boys & Girls Clubs?
I’m very passionate about youth and families, and Boys & Girls Club focuses on just that!
What path did you take to end up here?
After taking a gap year doing AmeriCorps in 2017, I was able to see the amazing work of various nonprofits within small communities around the United States. I knew this was something I wanted to be part of long term, so I circled back to how I could invest in the community of Bend by plugging into local nonprofits. My Bachelor’s degree through Oregon State connected me to the Club in 2020, and I’ve been with the organization since.
What is your favorite part about living in Central Oregon?
I love that it’s sunny all year round, and how there is always a good view of a mountain!
