Serving the community is one of my biggest passions. I grew up in the Pierce and King areas and my life’s story resembles the hardships of the youth Teamchild currently serve every day; however, I was able to overcome the barriers that lied before me and now give back to those in need.
Not only is gaining access to the resources our clients need important to me, but what is equally important is being a living example of what a positive outcome looks like. So many of our youth have never witnessed what a positive outcome looks like nor have had models and mentors directly from their own communities.
So therefore, my passion is one full of empathy and mutuality. My work is driven through understanding and patience. I advocate for measurable success through clear objectives, but most importantly… I never forget that I am also a member of the same community as the youth I serve.
It will always take a village….
