Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born in Florida and moved to Hilton Head Island, S.C., at the age of two. I spent the next 16 years growing up on the island and enjoying the beach.
Favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? On the weekends I enjoy hanging out with friends and spending time outside. I also love taking trips and exploring new places as often as possible.
What excites you about your work at The Ivey and the contribution you make here? I love working at The Ivey because of the wonderful members that I get to spend my day with. Getting to know each member, what they like and dislike, to help them enjoy their time here is a privilege. Being able to bring joy to these individuals is what makes my job so great. In addition, the staff and volunteers make the work environment exciting and fun. The care the members receive is unparalleled to anything I have seen and I am so happy to be a part of it.
