I am a program associate focused on economic development in the southwestern corner
of Arkansas. I am a part of the SBA community navigator pilot program.
All my AmeriCorps roles are super interesting: when I was with NCCC we got to serve
in Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston and on the Texas/Louisiana boarder.
We lived and worked in a wildlife refuge in North Carolina, we were rebuilding a walking
pavilion in the swamp. Hungry black bears were trying to break into our cabin for
a month. Additionally, we got to travel to Outer banks of North Carolina rebuilding
the famous “Pony Pens” on Ocracoke Island, though I was only there for a few days.
With United Way of the Piedmont, I served as VISTA Leader/Program manager for our
financial stability program. There I met a lot of great people and was able to see
community development in action. The connectivity of that community was so awesome.
I was happy to be a part of that project.
Thursday right now. Honestly, I don’t know why. Maybe because we’ve been going out
lately on Thursday.
I admire perseverance and grit the most. Tough times show true character and can bring
out the best in people.
I don’t have a moment where there was a eureka or anything major in regards to professional
development. But, the last 5 years or so I have been super intentional about the trainings
and conferences I've attended and my mentor helps me out too.
I believe owning businesses are the driving force to make the racial wealth disparities
smaller and a key opportunity to prosperity for those who choose to take the risk
to become small business owners. I have been looking to get to this work for a while
so I am super excited to get started.
Being out in the field will be fun. Making the new relationships with the people of
southwest Arkansas will be even greater.
I am a yogi.
