Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
When I went to the Chicktime retreat with my friend, Carol, I felt that God was telling me to wait and be patient, but He would show me how much a chapter was and is needed in Austin.

 

My passions and gifts:
My passion is working with children with special needs, developing personal relationships with others, making people smile and laugh, seeing my family happy. It’s my gift =}

 

Hobbies and Interests:
My hobbies include reading books, watching movies, anything purple, hanging with my family, writing, cooking.

Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
Our chapter leader, Jennifer, who I met at church about 15 years ago, shared some information about Chicktime and asked me to be a co-leader.  Prior to this, I had never heard of Chicktime. After reading the information, I knew it was something I wanted to do.  It also made me feel good to know that Jennifer saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself and trusted me enough to go on this journey with her. I also love the idea of being a positive role model to others, especially children.

 

My passions and gifts:
My passions and gifts are working with kids, helping others, and being a positive role model.
Hobbies and Interests:
I love playing board and card games (especially Uno and Trivial Pursuit). I travel across Texas with my job so when I’m not working I also love to watch movies (comedies and chick flicks) and the Wizard of Oz. I love Golden Girls reruns, too! I enjoy reading and just being with my family.

Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
The number one reason is that I want to make a difference in the lives of the young women we serve. I truly want to make their world a better place and care passionately about the mission of Chicktime and want to be a champion for the cause.

 

My passions and gifts:
Being a natural born communicator and having the ability to effectively communicate, I turned my natural gift into a passion and an expertise for training and adult learning. The majority of my career has been spent in some sort of training space. I have thoroughly appreciated being able to assist adult learners accomplish and exceed their career goals. This has also encouraged me to go back to college to pursue/complete my Bachelor’s degree in Communications.

 

I have continued to utilize and cultivate those skill sets acquired throughout my collegiate career as a platform for my own personal and professional development as well. It is these skills that I feel would make me a value added asset as a co-leader with Chicktime and serve as an inspiration to the young women that we serve.

 

Hobbies and Interests:
A mantra that I choose to live by is if you cannot give monetarily you can definitely give of your time and service. This is a practice that I wholeheartedly believe in and choose to practice as much as I possibly can. I am extremely interested in volunteering for various non-for-profit organization that supports and shares the same values and belief systems as I. I also appreciate working with kids in all kids, of all ages in all capacities. I enjoy spending time as Mentor to my third grade mentee as Reily School and I am also extremely active with the local Dress for Success Chapter.

 

In addition to my volunteer efforts, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, as well as exploring and traveling to various regions around the world. I am also extremely active within my church and appreciate retail therapy whenever humanly possible.
