Vice President, Development

You can't put a price on the ability to speak and write in Spanish. Being bilingual is always a "perk" that often sets me above the rest, whether it's for a job, a volunteer opportunity or when I am at a store and can help someone translate their needs. I am truly grateful for the amazing teachers, professors and mentors that encouraged me to study hard and pursue a degree that is absolutely priceless in my life.
