I seek to use a person-centered approach to contribute to my community. Prior to Cradle 2 Career, I studied Elementary Education and Spanish at the College of Saint Benedict. My involvement in education, nonprofit programming, and local volunteering made Cradle 2 Career the perfect fit. Each day, I am energized by utilizing communications as a tool to connect with students, parents and caregivers, elected officials, and other constituents of this community-owned and community-led initiative. I believe in using authentic story-telling and meaningful data to invite others to get involved.
In addition to my part-time role at Cradle 2 Career, I am the Outreach Coordinator at United Way of Olmsted County. I promote volunteerism, advocacy, and collective impact. Outside of work, you will find me cooking, blogging, reading (and reflecting with my book club), doing yoga, or volunteering.
