Tell us about your title and role.
As Community Engagement Coordinator, I work to bring the community together by uniting leadership and resources for the betterment of Lake County.
What made you want to be a part of this organization?
I see UWLC as a pillar of the community, bringing vital resources and programming to all of Lake County. After working 25 years within a local school district, in family and community engagement, UWLC was a natural transition for me to continue to make a positive impact in Lake County. UWLC provides a way for people to stay connected to a greater sense of community. Who would not want to be a part of that?
Which of UWLC’s programs do you connect to most and why?
UWLC allows me to continue doing what I love—bringing people together for the greater good—which is a part of all UWLC’s programs.
What is your favorite part of your job here?
The opportunity to do great work with great people. Getting to do what I love on a daily basis is a dream come true. To be able to bring together people’s time, talents, and resources to make life better for everyone is what makes it all worthwhile.
When you are not at work, what kinds of things do you do with your time?
I love spending time with my family, friends, and dog. When not coordinating volunteers at work, I volunteer at various community events. I am an active Little Fort Lions member and sit on the board for several local grassroots nonprofit organizations.
