I have had a lifelong passion of helping others since a young age. At the age of 12, that passion led me to create my first nonprofit with the mission of helping young people get access to service-learning opportunities and resources.
Inspired by my nonprofit work, I then sought to increase access to affordable summer enrichment opportunities for youth. This led me to create a for-profit youth sports and enrichment programming company that partnered with municipalities to provide enriching experiences to thousands of youth.
From 2017 – 2022, I served as the Director of Community Engagement and Special Projects for the SMU Simmons School of Education. In this role, I was responsible for building project strategy and relationships for national partnerships. This includes the creation of the West Dallas STEM School, an innovative Pre-K through 8 STEM school built in partnership with Toyota North America and Dallas Independent School District.
I now lead Allstate’s national youth empowerment portfolio, including philanthropic grantmaking and programming. To learn more about The Allstate Foundation, please visit www.allstatefoundation.org.
