As a young adult, college student and sorority sister, I have had a number of different opportunities for community involvement, including but not limited to: mission trips sponsored by my home-town youth groups; Habitat for Humanity; volunteering at the School of Urban Planning and Architecture (SUPAR); assisting in The Medicine, Engineering, Dentistry, Architecture and Law (MEDAL) Program at UWM; participating in multiple walks for community awareness including The MS Walk Milwaukee, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and Take Back The Night); and participating in both the "Women in Technology" event on MSOE campus and fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House that is sponsored by my sorority every year. As a young professional, I have been involved in some small volunteer opportunities, but not as much as I had while during my time in university. I am hoping that being a member of Rotaract will help me to build a stronger involvement with our community as I have missed participating.
I really like volunteering for walk/marathon/century fundraisers because I think they are highly motivating while they also support individuals in our community that are sometimes forgotten about. I also am a strong supporter of encouraging the youth in our community to take an active role in embracing their own futures. As a sorority sister, I have pledged to promote strong women in engineering and technical science. My career is rooted in a heavily male populated field and I love bridging that gap. I would love to be involved in any event promoting these particular focuses, as well as anything to do with green building and construction, the history of Milwaukee and or any other community(s) with respect to urban planning and design, international outreach (generally speaking), and also anything and everything relating to the promotion and support of Rotary Youth Exchange and their affiliated programs.
