How long have you been working for Youth2Youth?

I have worked for Youth 2 Youth for 13 years.

Aside from working for Youth2Youth, how do you spend your time?

When I am not at work I enjoy being with family and friends, and being near or on the water, especially the ocean. I like fishing, jet skiing and nature in general, although I am NOT a fan of winter, except for 2 days of snow during the holidays.  I enjoy drawing nature and animals and have just attempted painting classes.

What is important to you?

My family is the most important to me, but also very important is seizing the moment and looking for the best in situations presented.

Why do like working for Youth2Youth?

I like working for Y2Y because youth are our future, and positive changes are heavily influenced by youth and their enthusiasm.  Working with my groups keeps me young and hopeful.
My all time Favorite quote and how I try to live is based on this:
“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these” by George Washington Carver
