I grew up in Ephrata, WA and came to Spokane in 2008 to attend Whitworth University. I pursued degrees in Graphic Design and Communications so that I could find a career that embodies my two greatest passions, art and people. I graduated in 2012 and started working for Larry H. Miller Corporation where I was able to get plugged into their Charity committee over the years to help give back to the non-profit organizations that work to love and support the less fortunate in Spokane. I came from a small town, so I love that Spokane has that same deep sense of community and that there is a little something for everyone. The people are friendly, diverse and kind-hearted with a uniting connection through their love of this city.
My interests are broad and diverse. Volleyball, Softball and Snowboarding keep me moving and connected to a team or community throughout the year. I also love photography, dancing, and spending as much time as possible with my family and incredible friends. My passions are cooking anything and everything and connecting with people from all walks of life. I love serving most by doing yard work, donating blood, feeding others and just lending an ear or shoulder when needed. I have a soft spot in my heart for the LGBTQ+ community as a whole, but especially for the homeless LGBTQ+ youth and LGBTQ+ involved in our churches in Spokane.
What drew me to this group is that Heal Spokane strives to support and nurture the community in any way possible and I love that there isn't a specific target audience. As a charity, they can and will help however the need arises so that we are serving and inspiring healing in this beautiful city and empowering every person to do the same through small, selfless acts of grace, compassion and kindness.
