She was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago and served as an AmeriCorps NCCC/FEMA Corps member in 2017. During that year, she gained such a passion for community service that she decided to serve another year in her home city as an VISTA Leader. She is currently pursuing her associate’s degree in Accounting and a Certificate in Bookkeeping at Prairie State College. She chose to take on this leadership role to help guide Housing Action Illinois’ network of VISTA members through an amazing experience and make sure that they have a successful year.
