Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: I had the opportunity to work for 4 years at a little shop called The Wig Cottage. It was a beautiful salon that specialized in finding wigs for women either battling cancer or those with hair loss. It allowed me to do something I really loved, which was bringing joy into the life of someone going through a difficult challenge in their life.
Education: I am currently completing my Bachelor of Arts in Communications through University of Phoenix and joyfully suffering through golf lessons from my dad.
About me: I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. I have attended college here and love being able to call Vegas my hometown where my entire family resides. In my free time I love going to hot Pilates, spending time outdoors, going to the beach and doing anything that makes me feel alive. I am also a childhood cancer survivor of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for 7 years now. Yay! Being diagnosed at a young age, I was able to Make-A-Wish of my own.
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: Working for Make-A-Wish has been a dream job of mine ever since my own wish was granted in 2011. I absolutely love that I am now able to be a part of such an incredible foundation that creates that same wonderful impact on others that Make-A-Wish did for me.
My wish would be: My granted wish back in 2011 was to go on a Caribbean cruise which was truly a bright star in an otherwise dark night. However, now many years later, my wish would be to travel to Thailand and play with baby elephants.
