Favorite class(es): I both hated and loved editing my college newspaper. It was a massive challenge, but it stretched me and grew me, and I loved managing the staff.
Moving from college to career:
After graduating with an English degree, I taught High School English for 2 years and did not like it. After teaching, I did volunteer work for years while raising my two kids.
I decided to go back to work when my youngest was in high school and worked as an Administrative Assistant for 18 months then was hired as the Administrative Specialist at the Ronald McDonald House.
This position transitioned into the Communications Manager position which I now hold, and I've been here four years.
My college major was English, and I'm the grammar and editing police around here! I enjoy working with words.
My life experiences led me to love nonprofit work. I love knowing we're making such an impact on families in challenging times.
