I am passionate about

Actions

I've always worked to improve the communities in which I've lived by working to advance initiatives that improve the lives of others. I've spent much of my time over the last 8 years working with young people in summer camps and serving on the board of a small non-profit dedicated to youth development in Arkansas. I moved to California 3 years ago and found the opportunity to raise funds to support an organization dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers. I raise funds by completing long-distance endurance events such as triathlons and marathons. To date, I've raised or helped to raise more than $25,000 USD to fund cancer research while completing several triathlons, including two Ironman-distances. I volunteer with this organization as a training leader to inspire participants to meet their fundraising goals and achieve athletic goals that they themselves once viewed as impossible. My goal for 2018 is to do all that I can to support the One Young World platform and help Ambassadors everywhere achieve their own "impossible" goals.
