I began my career in this field while living in Athens, Ohio in 2010. I was looking for a job, and Hearts of Hope was hiring. Having no prior experience, I was admittedly skeptical. After one week on the job, I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.
I moved back to Urbana in 2011 and joined the Creative Foundations team. I was a team member working residentially for about a year. In 2012 I moved from residential to the IDS, and have been the Activities Coordinator in the Urbana studio since 2013.
I’m very fortunate to be working in this field with such a forward thinking company, and there is nothing better than having the opportunity to help improve the lives of others. I look forward to my future with Creative Foundations, and continuing to work with the individuals that spark my passion for the field daily.
