Title: Director of Mission Delivery
Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: Before joining the Make-A-Wish family, I was a site coordinator with Communities in Schools of Southern Nevada, a drop-out prevention program. Before that, I was a preschool teacher and worked in Behavioral Health as an in-home counselor for teenage girls.
Education: I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2011 with a Bachelors of Science in Family Studies and Human Development and a minor in Psychology. Go Wildcats!
About me: I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and have lived in Las Vegas since August 2011. I love the outdoors and staying active. I also love animals and exploring new places. My favorite place to visit is anywhere I’ve never been before! If it were socially acceptable I would become a gypsy and travel the world surviving off the kindness of others and my fantastic bartering skills. Since that is not an option, I will continue enjoying life in Las Vegas with my pets!!!!
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: My favorite part of working at Make-A-Wish is knowing I am helping make a difference in the lives of children!
My wish would be: My wish would be to be a performance level aerialist/acrobat… and also to save all of the abandoned animals on the streets… and also to travel the world. I don’t know how these kids choose just one!!! J
