Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona:
I was a former Make-A-Wish Arizona intern (Yay!) I have also worked for the Phoenix Business Journal and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona.

Education: B.S. in Social and Behavioral Science with a focus in Community Development and minor in Business from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!!) 

About me: Originally from San Francisco I moved to Arizona for the heat and to attend ASU. I love sleeping in on weekends, hanging out with my little sister, playing with my English Bulldog, and watching baseball.

Why Make-A-Wish Arizona: It is so incredible to work for an organization that makes such a huge impact on the local community and I love seeing people really come together to make the magic of wishes come true. I look forward to coming to work every single day because this is truly my dream job. 

What are your strengths: I am a highly effective team player with contagious enthusiasm and passion for excellence with great attention to detail.

What are your weaknesses: I love working a little too much.

My wish would be: 

Travel through Greece on a yacht with my family!
