Joined the Board of Directors in 2020

I was born and raised in St. Paul, and have lived in South Minneapolis for the past 13 years. I have been working for the Metropolitan Council since late 2019, before that I was the Office Manager for the non-profit HECUA. Growing up, I always wanted a career in fashion, but as I got older, my passion for helping others and building community took over and I’m really glad I made the career shift. I am currently planning to wed my partner that I met four years ago, later this year in New Orleans.

During my time at HECUA, my friend and colleague, Laney Ohmans, who was previously a board member for Exodus told me about the organization and I knew I wanted to get involved. 2 years later here I am!

Who is one person who inspires you and why?

My Mom! A single parent who raised two children on her own, her strength and resilience inspires me everyday.
