What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?

In 2014, I was working part time at another Denver non-profit and looking for a full-time position. When I saw the job posting I knew immediately it was the place for me! I love my job as much as I love the mission of FRIENDS FIRST, and to quote newspaper publisher Katherine Graham, “To love what you do and feel that it matters, how could anything else be more fun?”

How has a mentor impacted your life? 

My mentor saw potential in me, which allowed me to see it as well.
