Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to help others and have always taken on this role in my personal and professional life. I’ve worked and interacted with children and families through various settings. Our children create a foundation for our future and they benefit from the guidance and encouragement of others. In my opinion, Mercer County Mentoring helps to provide the children within the community a source of guidance to accomplish a brighter future.

I serve as a board member for Mercer County Mentoring because I value the goals that the program holds and I would like to see this program thriving within our Mercer County communities. This program is being built around the needs of the young people of our area and requires a lot of time, energy, dedication, and of course, funding. I enjoy serving on the board with other volunteers that have similar hopes and dreams for our children and their futures
