What is the best career advice you ever received?
Work hard and make sure you never stop learning.
What motivates you to give back to your community?
I grew up in an area where change couldn’t happen fast enough. I watched as friends, classmates, and good people in my local town would head toward the wrong path. One thing I knew for certain was that it takes people with strong will and dedication to bring change to any community. My main motivation is my children. I’m involved because of my passion for giving but I also want to help give back not only to help others but to teach my kids what it is to give back and what it truly means to bring change to a community.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
