2. Where is your favorite place to go in Seattle?
Home. Lol. I spend a lot of nights out at dinner with friends and other activities. I absolutely love quiet time on my couch with my television.
3. Your first interaction with Seattle Works was…?
I had heard much about Seattle Works and interacted with volunteers and board members on a personal level. Surprisingly, my first direct interaction with Seattle Works was when I met with Tara to discuss board leadership. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
4. What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in the Seattle area?
I love the restaurant Toulouse Petit. They serve the best New Orleans food in the area. Everything on their menu is absolutely fantastic!
5. Are you involved with any other Seattle nonprofit organizations?
I’m an avid volunteer with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. We conduct service projects each month, mostly for youth in the Seattle area. I was also a recurring volunteer at Bellevue Youth Theatre when I first moved to the area.
6. Which coffee shop do you most frequent?
Hmmm… I’m not really a coffee drinker. However, I like any coffee shop with frozen drinks and tasty snacks.
7. What three words best describe your experience with Seattle Works?
Leadership. Energy. Growth.
8. Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks?
Sounders. They seem to be the most fun.
9. What is your most (or first) memorable volunteer experience?
My most memorable volunteer experience was actually planting trees with some of my best friends during college in Washington, DC. It didn’t seem like an “amazing” volunteer experience at the time. However, I now really appreciate it because every time I visit D.C. and drive past the tree, I remember my college days with my girls.
10. What makes someone a Seattleite?
A Seattleite is born and raised in Seattle. If you absolutely LOVE Seattle and never want to move, then you can be considered a Seattleite as well.
