1. What led you to join the ASC team? I interned with the ASC in Winter 2008-2009. I was so impressed by the professionalism of the organization, and loved working with the ASC participants, instructors, and volunteers. I knew the ASC was in line with my professional goals, so I applied to be an instructor the following year and I haven’t left since!

2. What is your favorite part about working for the ASC?
The people! I love the ASC community and feel so fortunate to be a part of such a great group of people. Our participants and families bring such great energy to the ASC. Every day is different here and I love working together as a team to carry out our mission every day.

3. What’s a fun fact about you?
I’ve touched both the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean in one day.
