Community Outreach

Community Service and giving back. I pride myself on helping others achieve their career ambitions through networking, coaching, mentoring or volunteering for other development opportunities. I have gained a great deal through my volunteer experience while on the Executive Board of the Make-A-Wish MN Chapter for six years and continue to help the organization whenever opportunities arise. I have also been a mentor with Menttium since my participation in the program more than 20 years ago. I am currently involved with The Alzheimer’s Association and contribute to many charitable organizations on a regular basis including an active volunteer role with the American Legion. I believe that if you help others on their path, your journey improves as a result.
