When did you start working at UWLC?
I started working at United Way of Lake County on October 4, 2021.
What are your title and role?
I am a Donor Relationships Account Manager. My role is working with organizations on their employee giving campaigns.
What made you want to be a part of this organization?
I’ve always wanted to work somewhere that made a meaningful difference. The fact that UWLC’s work positively affects the community that I grew up in and still live in was what really sealed the deal for me. I’m excited to be a part of the commitment to support Lake County.
Which of UWLC’s programs do you connect to most and why?
211! I think it’s incredible how much support 211 can offer people. It’s something I didn’t know about prior to working at United Way, and I’m passionate about telling others about it because I know how many lives it can impact.
What is your favorite part of your job here?
Getting to connect with so many people. Since I started, I’ve met a new person almost every day. It’s awesome to get to expand my network and meet so many people that are out there doing work for the community.
When you are not at work, what kinds of things do you do with your time?
I like to run in the evenings and watch cooking videos on TikTok. I’ve also recently picked up reading and aim to read a new book every month or two.
