Sweet Cheeks Role: Development Director
Why are you excited to be part of the Sweet Cheeks team? I am looking forward to helping children in my city that otherwise would not have it. To know that I am bettering the lives of children and their families by helping supply clean diapers to them. It gives me a warm heart knowing that I am bringing smiles to so many people.
Tell us about your kid(s): I have a 2 year old son, who is a bundle of energy. He loves to talk to everyone, read books and explore the outdoors. He has brought new meaning to my life, and I can see the love he has to give and I hope that he will continue to have that as he grows up.
Which part of Sweet Cheeks’ current strategic plan are you most excited to work on? I am excited to find ways to connect Sweet Cheeks with the community, and see how those connections can grow the diaper bank.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I would go to the Galapagos Islands. My brother-in-law went and said it is like something out of dreams, and I want to experience that. The solitude of nature and the general beauty of life in its truest form.
What are you reading right now? Nothing. I am in search of a good book to start!
If you had one extra hour of free time a day, how would you use it? I would spend it with my husband. We are both so busy and it would be nice to just have that one hour to ourselves.
If there were a holiday in your honor what would it celebrate? It would celebrate my love of philanthropic involvement. Everyone would spend the day helping with what they hold near and dear to their hearts.
