What are you most excited about in your new role? This role feels like a culmination of everything I have learned throughout my career – from programming to fundraising to Board management. Not only do I get to focus on our day-to-day operation, but I also oversee our strategic direction and development. It has been exciting to incorporate my history with national youth leadership programs into our local program. The students are at the core of every decision I make.
