I began with the organization as a service delivery staff, which really allowed me to grow and develop my connection to the agency and the families we work with.
Every time I made a new match or got to sit and reflect on a full year with an existing match, I felt like I was having a positive impact.
I transitioned to the Executive Director role a few years later, which allowed me to become immersed in not only the BBBS community, but my community. The work I do know allows me to feel that we are making positive steps forward, not only with one youth but on an ever-larger scale.
My most memorable moment – how can someone pick just one! It was when the Little from the first match I ever made, who hardly said more than two words during his interview process, ran up to me and gave me his school photo at a group event a year later. Her parents had also brought a homemade pie to thank me for finding a Big for their child – that gesture really touched me to the core.
