What is your favorite part about working at CAPRW? 

My favorite part is when I work with my co-workers and with other departments to make a difference in the families that we worked with..


Do you have a favorite memory about working with families? 

One Memory that I can think of is the first time I had to process an application to completion  and get the lights turned on for one of our families; they called with tears of joy expressing what difference I made in their lives by merely doing my job.


How did you discover your passion for working with a nonprofit?

The first month that I worked here and realized that it's possible for struggling families to get help, because where I come from that is unheard of.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time outside of work? 

I enjoy participating in game nights and BBQ Bonfires!
