I am: 27

I’m a young professional: currently looking for new career opportunities

I get involved in my community through the following organization(s): PICK, Path of Life Ministries, and Women Wonder Writers.

I’m proud of this achievement: Graduating from UC San Diego with honors.

I am a happy resident in the City of: Riverside.

My career goals are to: Raise money for higher education so that low-income students can go to school, as well as teach in a university setting.

My professional motto is: Continue to put yourself outside of your comfort zone.

My advice to other YoPros is: Whatever career you pursue, give back to your local community through volunteering for an organization that serves the people of your area. The impact that you have on others is what is most valuable in this life.

When I’m not working or volunteering, you can find me: Riding my bicycle or rock climbing.

I joined PICK because: I wanted to meet a group of like-minded individuals who were doing something greater than themselves by serving the people of Riverside.

PICK is awesome because: It inspires young professionals through connecting individuals with similar passions.

I maximize my PICK membership by: Being on the board of the PICK Group, Chairing the Social and Membership Committee, and serving on the Civic Engagement Committee.

The issues in Riverside that I care about most are: Reducing the amount of income disparity among the population, as well as creating a supportive environment for new business prospects.
