What I love most working for Habitat for Humanity: Getting to work with a wide array of people who have all come together to make our community a better place.

One word that describes me: Driven.

What I enjoy at Habitat construction sites: The level of intricacy that goes into each project and the immense amount of teamwork and camraderie that is involved.

My favorite tool: Nail gun.

People who inspire me: Those that look adversity in the eye and have the strength to move beyond it, pushing towards a better tomorrow.

Best advice ever given: When I took my first job in non-profit fundraising, my former boss told me to treat every donor like they are a million-dollar donor.
