Can you share more about your role? How do you support the community through your work?

As the Community Impact Director for Monitoring and Evaluation, I work with our 38 (now 44) funded partners in supporting their programs for the fiscal year. I help them track program outputs and measurable outcomes in our community as a direct result of their hard work. I also use this information to communicate to our board and stakeholders as well as for data in applying for additional grant funding which in turn helps us fund more organizations in Southern Nevada.

Please share what inspired you to join Team UWSN?

Observing the positive work that United Way provides for our community inspired me to want to join the team and do what I can to give back to the community that raised me.

How do you have fun in Las Vegas?

I enjoy attending local farmers’ and craft markets, golfing, disc golfing, and trying new places to eat in our beautiful buzzing town.

What is a fun fact about you?

My favorite type of food is Mediterranean.
