I began working at BBBS at age 18 as I was inspired to give back to the agency because so much was given to me through the program. My Big showed me the true meaning of love through her constant support and encouragement. For that, I owe the agency as much as I can give.

I have a background in communications – partially due to my love of reading, partially due to my love of writing, but mostly due to my love of talking. When I’m not serving our BBBS kids, I might be found playing Legos with my son Desmond or taking a nap with my cat Michael Jackson.

A Fort Wayne native, I learned about BBBS from a neighbor who was a Big Brother. I saw the need for my children to have mentors and enrolled them in the program. Three years ago, I heard the CEO needed an assistant, and I’m still here smiling and loving my job more and more every day.
