Why You Joined JLS:
I joined after moving to the area. I was hoping to meet friends and plug in to the community.

Favorite JLS Event:
2019 Holiday Event. I coordinated the planning of this event with the Arrangements Committee and am proud of how it turned out. Our goal was for it to be special, memorable, a celebration and the kind of event League members truly want to attend.

Favorite JLS Memory:
Volunteering with the League at Cents of Pride and seeing the children use the points they earned to buy Christmas gifts for their family members. That was touching to see and to be a small part of.

Life Outside the League:
I’m part of the 417 family and serve as the Brand Coordinator there. I have a beautiful and supportive family, including a toddler who keeps me running! I’m from Texas but feel lucky to have landed in 417-land, where I’ve met wonderful friends who have changed my life and am overwhelmed by the beauty of the Ozarks again and again.

Fun Fact:
I haven’t been on a stage since college, but I love musical theatre and perform regularly in the car! Springfield has an excellent community of artists that I enjoy cheering on and supporting.
