We just oversee the operations of the currently UWBG Frankfort office and help with any volunteer opportunities that come up that they need us for.
What made you realize you had a passion for your field of work?
My office holds a United Way campaign every year, so I’ve been involved with United Way for a long time. There was another person in our office that was on the board and was leaving, so I volunteered to fill that position.
What is your favorite part of this position?
I’d say my favorite part is having the ability to see all the positive work that gets done in Frankfort.
What about working in this position inspires you?
I like knowing that the things we’re doing are actually reaching people and helping the less fortunate.

My husband and I like to go hiking.
What five words would you use to describe yourself?
Creative, positive, independent, happy, wanting to help others.
Are you an early bird or night owl?
I’m usually up pretty early, so I’d say I’m an early bird.
If you could time travel, would you go back in time or to the future?
Probably to the future to see how everything turns out.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
To see the future or be able to tell the future.
