Born and raised in Colorado, I have always had the privilege of fulfilling my wishes that have arisen in life thus far. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s Degree in Operation Management, accompanied with an International Business Certificate. I recently completed an Event Management Postgraduate Certificate at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
I began volunteer work at a young age through my church. My eighth grade year, I traveled to Mexico through “Casas Por Cristo” and built a house for a family. As we drove through the town to get to the location, I was almost in tears from the sight of houses being built from newspaper. After we had finished our mission, the appreciation that the family showed towards us has changed my life forever. I knew at this moment that I was meant to help other individuals overcome obstacles that they are faced with in life.
I came across Wish of a Lifetime, and instantly knew this was an organization I wanted to work for.
This was due to the fact that they held many of the same values and morals which I have learned in my life. At a young age my grandparents spent most of their time watching my sister and I, while my mother obtained her bachelor’s degree. I became very close to my grandparents and I am grateful for their hard work and dedication which they showed towards their family. I am still very close with my grandmother, and enjoy talking to her about past experiences and lessons she has learned along the way. This helped me realize that there are many things in life that older adults have not been able to accomplish due to various reasons.
I feel incredibly privileged to be able to meet and grant wishes for these deserving older adults! I hope you will join us to further its purpose of a cultural shift; and creating joy and an appreciation for life no matter the age!
