What’s your favorite volunteer experience since joining? 

Day of Caring 

What social issue are you most passionate about and why?

Minority impact and keeping art in schools. The impact of art in the lives of children and people with all backgrounds provides a variety of outlets for creative expression. Art often gives those students who need other forms of motivation a viable reason to remain active in school.

As a millennial, what do you do for fun in Mobile? 

I am an introverted millennial. I love art. If I am not expressing myself creatively I’m most likely somewhere engaged with nature or practicing yoga. I’d rather watch sports, a good show on Netflix or curl up on the couch with a good read while sipping tea. I’m probably the last person you want to ask about what I do for fun in Mobile because I’m always looking for a road trip.
