What is the most exciting part of your role with GTCF?

I love being able to connect with people from all across the county and beyond. I am blessed with the connections and relationships I have been able to form since joining GTCF. Pierce County is awesome!

Palmer Scholars - Program Director, Friends of Youth - Program Supervisor, University of Puget Sound - Admissions Counselor, Peace Corps - Community Health Volunteer (Guatemala)

Outside of GTCF, what enjoyable activity do you engage in? What brings you joy?

I love to be outside-- whether it's hiking, camping, hunting, fishing or exploring forest service roads. I am so lucky to have been born and raised in the Pacific Northwest.

What activity, place, or event do you recommend other people check out in Pierce County?

I love food and have a few favorite spots in Pierce County: Mandolin Sushi, Parkway Tavern, Elbe Tavern, and Taste of Peru. I also recommend just being able to explore this beautiful county that we live in, so many incredible places.
