What drew you to the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits board? 

When I joined Valley of the Sun United Way, there were members of our team who participated in a variety of programs that were offered. I began participating in their committees and found organizations that had similar issues that we could work on together to find solutions. I’ve learned a lot about the nonprofit sector from my colleagues across the state and this has helped me, and I hope I’ve shared some valuable information with them, too. 

What would you say to someone considering joining a nonprofit board? 

Take the time to learn about the issues, mechanics and people involved in the nonprofit you choose to serve. This is a great way to broaden your learning, leadership and love of service.
