What is it about your work that energizes and inspires you?
I enjoy the relationships at New Directions. I love supporting staff and seeing the smiles that result when individuals meet new staff. I also enjoy watching these relationships grow. I have seen how long-term relationships between staff and the people we support enrich lives.
What’s your favorite tradition?
I love traveling with my family, especially to State and National Parks.
What’s your idea of perfect weekend?
On the weekend, I love hiking, reading, watching TV and doing puzzles of all kinds.
