Having developed a passion for equality and environmental justice at a young age, I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2015 with Bachelor’s degrees in Environmental Studies and Geography, as well as a Certificate in Public Health. I have been an artist since I was old enough to hold a pencil, specializing primarily in painting, drawing, and graphic design. I am excited to use these creative skills and goal to promote community organizations to serve Giraffe Laugh as the Marketing and Volunteer Coordinator. When I was younger, I participated in youth activism and social change. I have always believed in the importance of quality care and education for children; especially in considering the impact of that empowerment on the voices of our future. I am also an aunt to six beautiful nieces and nephews, which elevated my drive to contribute to early childhood education. I moved back to Boise, my home town, late 2016 to be with my family and to make a meaningful impact in the city I love. That is what led me to Giraffe Laugh in early 2017, a desire to contribute to an organization with a great mission that adds value to the community.
