Who are you?
I am HSC’s bookkeeper. My job is to assist with the day-to-day, monthly and year-end operations of the accounting department.
What makes your job great?
I think it is great to work at an organization with a mission that I’m passionate about. Being able to apply my experience and education to support the goal of improving student health is fulfilling. My job also gives me the opportunity to see work across all of the program areas, which is interesting.
When did you come to Healthy Schools Campaign?
I joined HSC in July 2021. Prior to joining, I provided accounting and tax services at public accounting firms.
Why did you join Healthy Schools Campaign?
As someone who has volunteered in after-school and tutoring programs, the mission to improve student health resonated with me. I believe that kids should be able to learn in a healthy and safe environment. Students with access to nutritious food, opportunities for physical activity and health care are able to invest more in their academics, which helps set them up for a successful future.
Where does your motivation come from?
I want to support positive change. Students are in a significant and foundational part of their lives, so I hope to contribute something towards improving that experience.
