“For years I have always been fascinated with the idea of helping to bring something out of nothing!”
Growing up, everything took extra effort as I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy which effects my legs. It made daily tasks as simple as walking incredibly challenging, but, I was always determined! I fell down 10 times and stood up 11, people would tell me that I didn’t have to participate in gym or that I wouldn’t be able to do all that everyone else could do. I had always found a way. This pushed me to put 110% in everything that I do. This coupled with the upbringing of my parents influence helped me to develop an intense and passion driven work ethic and compassion to help every life that I have the pleasure to interact with.
Today, I find myself reflecting on all of the trials that life has thrown at me. It makes me all the more grateful for the adventure that Whitney and I have decided to embark on, growing through our friendship of over 17 years, and diving head first into a business that allows us to help change the lives of people in a way that gives me an opportunity to use the talents that I have been blessed with. It brings me great joy!
“In my free time when I am not working, I spend time with my family and going on random adventures which include hiking up a waterfall, finding a new place to eat or taking a drive to the beach.”
When I am not assisting with coordinating or working as a Lead Supervisor for a non profit, I enjoy spending time with my family and my adorable new nephew! Being an Uncle is the greatest part of my life that I could have. I would have never known that any one person could have so much of my heart the way my nephew does. He is my world! I also enjoy spending time with my friends even if we just sit in the car and sing to the radio or have deep conversations, it means the world. I am incredibly social and love spending time with those who mean everything to me.
This is just the beginning and I am stoked for this new chapter and where it will bring me but more importantly, what it will teach me. No matter where you are or how old you may be, you’re never through learning. Take each moment in your hand and hold onto it forever for time passes but memories last a lifetime.
