Can you share more about your role? How do you support the community through your work?
As a Community Impact Program Specialist, I represent UWSN in a unique balance of advocacy, education, and strategic communication planning. I support ongoing communication among the government affairs sector in Southern Nevada and our partners.
Please share what inspired you to join Team UWSN?
I previously was an intern at UWSN, and I genuinely fell in love with the work that we do. The work aligns with my values and continues to provide me opportunities to help create a positive impact in my hometown.
How do you have fun in Las Vegas?
Being born and raised in Las Vegas, I appreciate Downtown Las Vegas the most. We have the most amazing coffee shops, vintage art galleries, restaurants, and breweries. I can spend the whole day in Downtown!
What is a fun fact about you?
A fun fact about me is that I can certainly be spontaneous and adventurous! Life is way too short. Last minute weekend trip to Disneyland or Disneyworld? I am there!
