I was born and raised in Idaho where I found myself in the corporate world from an early age. After many years of success in that realm all across the United States, I decided to move to something more meaningful. I began coordinating the Idaho Youth Leadership Forum through the Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities. It was a leadership program for transition-age youth with disabilities. In 2012 I relocated to the DC area where I transitioned into homeless services. First, I ran Georgetown Ministry Center's drop-in center. After two years I moved to Capitol Hill Group Ministry as the Outreach Services Coordinator and case manager. From there I took a position with The Community Partnership as CAHP Coordinator, where I was responsible for the adult singles system across DC. At TCP I was responsible for the by-name-list, prioritization, data and reporting. In May 2018 I opted to return to direct service in the community in which I reside, and am now the Outreach Team Lead for the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness.
