I grew up in Camden, NC playing sports, skateboarding, and going to the beach as much as possible.

I currently reside in Uptown Charlotte and enjoy training for triathlons and traveling.

DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORIAL MOMENT?

There are two particularly memorable moments. The first was when I joined a CF Cycle for Life cycling team and embarked on my first fundraising project. The overwhelming response and support I received from my friends and co- workers was truly humbling. The experience inspired me to continue fundraising to make a difference. The second most memorable moment was when I initially volunteered for the Ellan Foundation at Moore Place. Interacting with past and present victims of chronic homelessness and hearing their stories impacted my view on the condition and has encouraged me to continue serving in the community.
