President and CEO
How did you first get into your profession?
I was a United Way donor in the workplace. Later, I became an intern while working on my Masters Degree in Social Work at the University of Nevada, Reno.
What is a little known fact about yourself?
I’ve taken up the hobby of fly fishing. I realize that I’m not going to be a first-rate competitor; however I am enjoying it very much.
If you could have coined a single phrase of wisdom, what would it be?
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor E. Frankl
What is the best moment of your career?
I distinctly remember the day, the lighting, and cellular experience of realizing the deep and heartfelt honor that I feel when a donor trusts me with their gift to United Way.
