I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors for DOVE. I believe fully in the power of strong organizations, such as this one, to make lasting impacts on the lives of many individuals and the community at large. I bring to the Board 8 years of experience in the non-profit field, as the COO of a Denver nonprofit organization. This experience has given me financial, fundraising, and nonprofit governance knowledge that I am happy to bring to my role with DOVE. I have lived in Colorado all of my life. My favorite things to do in my free time include: rock climbing, snowboarding, reading, creative writing, and just being outdoors.
