When did you join the team at United Way of Greater Stark County? May 2023. 

Briefly explain your role at United Way: I am responsible for managing our social media channels to help showcase our brand and engage with our community. In addition to managing our social media presence, I also assist our various departments with their marketing needs. This includes creating flyers, designing specific materials such as name tags or presentations and developing marketing strategies for our programs and services. 

What do you enjoy most about your work at United Way? What I enjoy most is knowing that my work contributes to creating a positive impact on the lives of those around us. 

What community partners or volunteer programs are you most passionate about supporting? Please explain. As a passionate supporter of programs that focus on youth development, I believe that it is crucial to provide young individuals with opportunities and experiences that allow them to explore and discover their passions. 

I am committed to these initiatives, as I understand the importance of leading our youth toward success and being a positive example for those who may need it. By investing in the future of our community's youth, we can create a brighter, more prosperous future for all.  

What do you like to do outside of work? I love to play pickleball!
