Why are you involved with Boys & Girls Clubs?
I was drawn to Boys & Girls Clubs because of everything they do for youth and families in Bend. I wanted to be part of a team that is service driven, passionate, and fun to work with, and I found that here.
What path did you take to end up here?
After graduating from UO, I got a job at a non-profit education farm in Sisters. Teaching kids about nutrition and helping people gain access to affordable, locally grown food made me realize that empowering others is the best way to feel connected to and engaged with my community. I traveled around Europe and then explored roles at various non-profits in Bend before landing at the Boys & Girls Clubs.
What is your favorite part about living in Central Oregon?
I love that we get a true winter, spring, summer and fall. I get really excited about the transitions and all of the activities and foods associated with each season.
