My family always has been a big part of my life. I’m the youngest of four children with one older brother and two older sisters. Growing up, my parents always stressed the importance of hard work, caring for others, and staying true to your values. My mom always told me that if my heart was close to the Lord (James 4:8), those characteristics would come much easier. As I grew older, I realized how blessed I was to have parents, siblings, and friends who invested their time in me and instilled important values that have helped shape the person I’ve become.
I’ve always enjoyed being able to impact people on a personal level. During college, I started working with youth and discovered it is something I’m very passionate about. I spent three summers in college working full-time at a summer camp for at-risk youth. I also had the opportunity to become a youth leader at my church during my sophomore year of college and have continued to do that each year as well. Working with youth helped me realize how much I enjoyed doing something that had a purpose, and I knew I wanted to find a job with underlying values of helping people. Foster Group was a great choice for me because we impact and serve people on a personal basis. I love being part of a team with that goal in mind.
