What do you do?
I am the Youth and Family Service Director at the Boys and Girls Club. I address the behavioral and mental health needs of youth members.

Why did you get involved in La Crosse SOUP?
I was a contestant at the first SOUP event that I attended. I won with the pitch that I presented that would help serve a group of high school students attending the Boys and Girls Club. I loved the atmosphere of collaboration that the SOUP event provided.  I think it is important to come together as a community and support local and creative ideas.

What is your favorite place in La Crosse?
Riverside Park offers beautiful scenery of the Mississippi River. I enjoy spending time walking around or relaxing by the river.
