Personal Statement: Unlike many adults, being playful has never stopped being a part of my life. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to freely apply that playfulness in the work that I do. This has allowed me to relate to and communicate with children and families in a way that I never thought was possible. The language of play allows me to bridge the worlds of adults and children, helping them connect, reconnect, or form entirely new fulfilling relationships that can help them thrive. Each day brings a new challenge. Some end in smiles, others in tears. In the end, I can only hope to fill their hearts in the way that they fill mine.
Fun Facts about You: I enjoy lifting weight, playing golf and spending time with my friends and family.
Why did you choose Tanager Place? I chose Tanager Place because we have similar missions: to serve underprivileged children and families.
