Why I decided to be a board member/committee member of WISE Greater Orlando…

    • I had participated in some national WISE events prior to the formation of the Greater Orlando chapter, so I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to engage locally. The invitation to serve as a mentor in last year’s inaugural WISE Within program was an honor and very rewarding.
The most rewarding aspect at your current role…

    • Standing at the intersection of sport and social justice every day (and inviting others to stand with us) and leveraging the extraordinary power and joy of sport to celebrate, empower, and transform a routinely marginalized, stigmatized, and underestimated population (athletes with intellectual disabilities) to realize and embrace their full potential. It’s about truly seeing one another and creating human connection through the simple, yet powerful act of play. 

 Best career advice I have received…

    • Never believe you are above or beneath any role. 

 Best memory I’ve created in the past year…

    • Maybe not the “best,” but the most enduring… holding my father’s hand. 

 In my free time, I’m…

    • What’s “free time?"  When not working, I don’t like to be idle. I volunteer, spend time with family and friends as much as possible, and like to get out and exercise as a way to re-center and clear my mind so as to allow creativity in. 

 I’m inspired by…

    • Strong, smart, funny, unapologetic, resilient, kind, humble, fearless, talented, passionate people who do more than hope to make a difference….they go out, do it, and bring others along with them.
