Department: Customer Service

Why did you become an OtterCares Ambassador: Teaching and children are my passion. Watching them learn and grow touches my heart.

Who or what has influenced your volunteer work (why do you volunteer?): Some of the most influential people in my life were volunteers that took the time to know me. Also overall just knowing that I can make a difference in at least on person’s life is the best thing.

Describe a volunteer activity you have been involved in that relates to the OtterCares purpose statement: I helped at Thunder Valley K-8’s kindergarten class. It was a blast getting in and helping those children learn each day. We were a part of their daily routine assisting them in their themed activities.

Describe your favorite volunteer activity (either one time or ongoing): My favorite is Graceful Oaks Youth Ranch. They offer Hope to Children, Strengthen Families, and Reach the Community and connect children with horses. We do things from working with the teens, maintenance on the ranch, and much more to make it a successful place to reach children that need it.

Why do you think the OtterCares purpose is important?: Children are our future. Helping them and guiding them to always know nothing is impossible is the best gift we can give them.
