How do you feel about raisins?

Meh, they are fine.  They are not a go-to snack for me ... Like a cookie or cheese.

What song is in your head right now?

"The Cave" by Mumford & Sons.

What's your passion?

I have two: Children and organization. Let me explain, children are the future and I think they should be treated as such! I have spent much of my life caring for children, I have a little sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters (an amazing organization), I get to work with children in my current job, and I cannot wait to have a few of my own one day. And organization, I simply have a ridiculous passion for keeping everything organized. From my house, to my headband collection, to finances and budgets, to my schedule ... I just get so much pleasure from an organized life!

What's something about yourself I couldn't find out on Facebook?

Probably that I have 2 adorable pugs. Oh wait, never mind, that's all over my Facebook. I make some mean Italian food, did you know that? And I love to cook for people!

What are your hopes and dreams for RISE?

My hope for RISE is that it continues to be a place for people in our community to feel safe, welcomed, and wanted. RISE offers so many things for so many people in our community, and we simply cannot stop here. We must keep growing and striving to reach more and more. EVERYONE should feel God's love and grace!
