Before joining Make-A-Wish® Arizona:  I worked at a no-kill animal shelter, Arizona Animal Welfare League.

Education:  Arizona State University

About me:  I am an Arizona native and recently graduated from ASU. I have worked with  a variety of nonprofits ranging from children organizations to exotic animal sanctuaries! My favorite of the exotic animals?  Snakes! I also love reading, watching movies, eating Thai food!

My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona:  Knowing I am helping children with life-threatening illnesses get their one true wish!

My wish would be:  to go on Safari in Africa!

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. ”
