When did you start working at United Way of Lake County?
I started on September 5, 2017.
What is your title and role?
In my role, I work with my team to maintain an integrated, strategic marketing and communications program; including web content, print and electronic materials, social media, donor communications, multimedia applications, special events, and more.
What made you want to be a part of this organization?
It was my goal to find an environment that was supportive and collaborative and to find work that was creative, inspiring and fulfilling. United Way of Lake County ticked all those boxes and felt like a great fit from the start. I love the work that United Way does and I’m grateful to be a part of such a caring and hardworking group of individuals.
Which of United Way’s programs do you connect to most and why?
I love all of our programs, but the one I want people to know about most is 211. Everyone in Lake County can use 211 to get connected to health and human services in their area. It’s free, confidential, 24/7, with English and Spanish-speaking staff and translation to 150+ languages. This is a wonderful way for people across our community and across the country can get access to critical resources.
What is your favorite part of your job here?
Being in the Marketing department, I get a chance to work on projects and initiatives with every department. I love learning more about the work UWLC does and getting to know everyone at this organization.
When you are not at work, what kinds of things do you do with your time?
My favorite things to do are spending quality time with my family and friends, exploring nature, creating art, singing, dancing, and playing games.
