I’m also privileged to be a member of The Village Group Board of Directors.  I love working with young people and watching them grow as young leaders.

Tell us something you wish people knew about you:
Music and baking are my therapy. I began playing the piano at the age of 2 and it’s a therapeutic escape that I thoroughly enjoy. I find great joy in singing even more. 

I’ve always enjoyed cooking and since I’ve ventured into baking, I look forward to trying a new recipe every chance I get.
