What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?

An opportunity to apply my strengths as an evaluator and my desire to work with an organization that values data and honest conversations about the work we are doing in the community.

How has a mentor impacted your life? 

I have had mentors come in many forms throughout my life, and they have all helped me learn how to nurture and apply my strengths in a range of areas.
