Education Coordinator, AmeriCorps VISTA
How did I get here?
I finished my post-graduate education in Southern Texas and was looking to move overseas to work with the foreign service offices when covid shut the world down. I wanted to put my degrees to good work but still have the flexibility to serve those whose lives are in uncertainty. I found AmeriCorps through those who had served before me and decided to serve myself while waiting for the world to adjust to the new normal.
Why am I at the Switchboard?
The All for All coalition and I learned about each other in the winter months of 2021. I was working with the refugee population in Houston, Texas and was preparing for a move to Pittsburgh. I wanted to continue with the work I was doing, and the opportunity presented itself through the coalition. The world changes when we come together to raise each other up.
