In my free time outside of school and work I love playing basketball. It has always been an important part of my life as I've played competitively and just for fun.
My personal motto is "if you have the ability to help, you have an obligation to help." And that has gotten me involved in various volunteer activities. Each year I participate in Team in Training and run marathons to raise money and awareness for blood cancers treatment and research. I have volunteer coached youth basketball and am now doing taxes for the United Way tax campaign.
My family is huge in my life and I love my 7 nieces and nephews like they're my own and try to go home to visit often. I also really value my friendships and have met a bunch of great people here through work, school and mutual friends.
