Who are you?

I am the Director of Accounting and Administration at Healthy Schools Campaign. My job is to help lead the accounting and financial functions that support our organization’s mission.

What makes your job great?

HSC has a very dedicated team of staff who are passionate about our mission. This drive to ensure our children and communities have access to healthy schools and environments makes the work we do rewarding.

When did you come to Healthy Schools Campaign?

September 2015.

Why did you join Healthy Schools Campaign?

My motivation has come from trying to make a path for future generations through hard work today for the children of tomorrow. My home insisted on the importance of getting ahead, while our means weren’t abundant, the ideas and support were always strong. I try to forge the same strength and motivation with my own son and is what ultimately drives the path forward.
