Q: What inspired you to volunteer to serve in a leadership role for JLGNH?
A: I love our mission & the fact that we have chapters across the nation. When asked to become a member of the board I saw it as an opportunity to really learn about the ins and outs at facilitating operations on the back end for the league as a whole.
Q: How many years have you been involved with Junior League?
A: This will be my 3rd year!
Q: Many members are interested in a literacy focus for our League. Can you tell us about a book you read recently and loved?
A: I love any murder mystery or anything that takes me out of the here and now. I recently read The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda.
Q: In the 21st century, there are so many ways for women to connect--what do you think is unique about Junior League and the women it brings together?
A: It’s an opportunity to meet and foster relationships with women you might never cross paths with. I love that you get to connect while giving back and doing something great in the community.
Q: What holiday tradition are you most excited about celebrating this season?
A: I’m excited to watch movies with my family on Christmas Eve! We always have a causal Christmas Eve night and I love it. We just spend time together laughing, playing games and enjoying each other’s company.
