I have served in various volunteer positions within our local community and the Greater Kansas City area. This includes serving as President for both the Belinder Elementary PTA and the IIDA MidAmerica Chapter, holding board positions for the Johnson County Library Friends and Girls Scouts of Northeast Kansas and Northwest Missouri, and being a founding member of the Belinder Elementary Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

Some of the transferable skills I’ve gained over these years include: surveying stakeholders, finding commonality & consensus building; evaluation, modification & establishment of community programs; RFP processes: writing, responding & evaluating; and fund development & community engagement.
