Giving Back

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”~ Mahatma Gandhi

Giving back is a priority for me. It’s the foundation of the work I am committed to and what I most wants to inspire in others. While most recently, it’s been a lot more challenging to volunteer and have the extra time to regularly commit while also juggling my role as a mother and parent. I’ve realized that while this time in my life I may not be able to volunteer regularly, there are still a lot of things I can do. Meanwhile, I currently look for opportunities where I can involve my children and share my love of volunteering and community with my two sons.

Changing the world starts at home.

I am always participating in random volunteer events as well, such as cooking for people in need, or gathering supplies to be donated.

Additionally, I donate a portion of my profits to a variety of organizations.

Some of my volunteer hours in the past were spent as a family mentor with Lutheran Family Services, a caretaker with Live by Living, as an English tutor with Emily Griffith School of Opportunity, as a mentor for DenverKids, supporting disabled children in equine therapy, the humane society, the Denver Botanic Gardens, and other events–including a yoga and music festival, cooking dinner at the Ronald McDonald House or Warren Village, and seizing other opportunities that come my way!
