What’s your favorite part of working here? I love interacting with the families we serve and meeting people in our community who are excited to help our organization by donating, volunteering, and getting involved.

What has been one of the most memorable moments from working here? I’ll never forget the first family I met when I began working here. They were from Fredericksburg and their daughter had been diagnosed with Leukemia. I remember having the hardest time leaving the office to go home that evening, knowing that they were going through such a difficult time. It was amazing to witness how the Ronald McDonald House helped to make their journey a little easier because they could be just a few miles from their daughter and also have a safe, comfortable place to stay as a family. And best of all was the day we were able to celebrate the doctor’s news that she was cancer free!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I never turn down dessert.
