Question:

What originally inspired you to serve the Monarch board as a Fellow?

Answer:

With most of my professional life in healthcare, I’ve always been drawn to opportunities where I can make a positive social impact. That’s why I was very excited when Rice matched me to the Monarch Institute as a Board Fellow. Most of my prior non-profit experiences have revolved around mentoring children in need of guidance and support. I am fortunate to have served in those roles and grow tremendously as a volunteer. Serving as a board member will be another great opportunity for me to contribute to the great mission of empowering individuals with neurological differences.

I am humbled to serve alongside a great group who is devoted to the Monarch Institute vision. There’s no doubt I will learn a tremendous amount from working alongside them. I hope to bring my diverse background and enthusiasm to the board as we move forward. My aim is to help the board make a powerful impact in the lives of our members and I will devote myself to do so.
