Growing up I always knew whatever career path I pursued would be one that allowed my mind to analyze and solve problems. From an early age, I had a knack for trivia, games, and most things involving competition. When I got to college my initial plan was to major in Business Management with a minor in Psychology, in hopes of one day helping businesses connect with their employees on a deeper level. However, life had a different plan for me and I developed a new passion: cooking and the hospitality world. I ended up graduating with a degree in Hospitality Management from Western Kentucky University in hopes of working in the challenging world of resort management. This eventually led me to a job in Sales, which is never where I intended to be. In 2020, amidst the beginnings of the COVID pandemic, I had a change of heart. My dad always had me in front of a computer from a young age and I realized this was something I was passionate about: working with computers and technology. I also got to know myself much better in a post-pandemic world and really pinpointed my desires and strengths in the professional world. This prompted me to change my career and pursue IT work in some form. I’m still not 100% sure where I’m headed but I feel like I’m on the right path.

When I found NAF, I fell in love with its mission. To go from the corporate world where all that matters is the bottom line and profit, to a company that truly strives to benefit the society it exists in has been a huge win for me. I’m beyond excited to be a part of NAF and look forward to helping improve the young lives that shape our future.
