Company: Safe Alliance Nonprofit
Position:Community Outreach Coordinator
On and off for 29 years
I’ve grown up in Charlotte and have truly witnessed it grow from a small town to a booming metropolis. I am a sports fanatic and self-proclaimed foodie who’s always looking for a new adventure. I’m a big believer in following my passions and keeping faith first in my life.
I volunteer with #lunchbagCLT and after we prepared over 200 lunches for the community we set out to distribute them. Nothing can compare to when a little boy gave me the biggest hug after he received a lunch and said he hadn’t had a meal in two days so this was a true blessing. It was quite memorable so I’m thankful for the organizers who put together such an awesome community project.
I think I contribute to the community by creating unique opportunities through different platforms, one being events, for diverse groups of people to interact, have fun while feeling empowered because we are supporting local/national causes.
I love to travel, spending time with my dog/family/friends, working out especially yoga and going to concerts. I also enjoy taking photos of food, my adventures and architecture.

In 5 years I see myself playing a key role in a national nonprofit, helping them with brand management and community partnerships.
Sure, a major to do on my bucket list is going skydiving, which I plan to do this summer!
Last month when I visited Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
I like comic books and playing some video games.
My parents are my heroes because they have dealt with being young parents and have both overcome insurmountable odds to provide for their family. I wouldn’t be half the person I am if it wasn’t for them. They both followed their dreams and have always pushed me to do the same; for that I am forever grateful.
