Redmond Garden Club
Every garden club member pitches in to support our annual goals and programs. I negotiated a new meeting location for the club, developed community outreach opportunities through the annual plant sale, moved their website to a new platform to align with their goals and budgeting needs and updated their website.

Bellevue United FC & Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association, soccer coach
Since 1998, I've coached five soccer teams for 1-5 consecutive seasons. My goal (pun always intended) is to teach a love for and an understanding of the game, while reinforcing sportsmanship and respect.
The values learned on the field always translate off the field.
King County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)
While working as a legal clerk and considering Law School, I advocated for the rights of abused and neglected children. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), I researched the unsafe living conditions of my CASA kids and worked alongside the Department of Social and Human Services (DSHS) to make recommendations.
I then attended hearings to report my findings to the King County court. All three of my cases were successfully adopted into safe, loving homes.
