Question: What is your favorite aspect of the Greater Phoenix area?
Answer: Phoenix is a great city for entrepreneurs and is very network oriented. Phoenicians are ready and willing to make connections – it feels like the smallest big city.
Question: What motivates you at work?
Answer: At Four Leaf, we have the privilege of working with a wide range of nonprofit organizations that are impacting people’s lives for the better every single day. What I have learned is that no one can make change alone, and the fact that our services are a part of the puzzle of positively impacting communities is hugely motivating for me. By providing the resources and guidance our clients need to make well-informed financial decisions, we support them in being the most powerful changemakers they can be.
Question: What goals do you hope to accomplish while on the VYP Board?
Answer: As a member of the VYP Board, I am excited to bring my experience of working with a wide-range of nonprofit organizations to the table. As one of the few members of the board who works with nonprofits, I plan to learn from my fellow board members in for-profit industries while providing a much-needed voice for community-focused organizations in this sphere.
