Director of Community Development

Best place you’ve ever been: Anywhere near the water. Key West was a wonderful time in my life. I loved having access to the clear blue ocean and the vibrant art community stoked my creativity.

Title of your memoir: Keep your bags packed. Always say yes to the trip.

How you Enjoy the Ride: Traveling, I love to experience different cultures. If there is time to immerse myself in the community and learn how people live and work, it creates lifelong memories of each trip. Learning how the old sea diver makes his rustic traps in Costa Rica, having dinner with Bastista’s driver in Cuba, milking cows on a farm in El Salvador, learning how to hand line for fish in Holbox. They instill gratitude for how lucky we are in life.
