Marketer by day and servant-leader at heart, I love to pair my diverse professional experience and passion for non-profits. As a Communications Vista for Empowering the Masses, Inc, I look forward to supporting their vision to equip citizens and foster communal vitality through strategic content that champions their mission and drives awareness of services and programs. From social media to corporate communications, my goal is to build capacity for the organization that engages and activates volunteers, donors, and served communities.

Student Success Coach/ Student Resource Coordinator

I am a graduate student in the MSW program at UT Arlington. I am finding great joy and valuable experiences in interning with Empowering the Masses. Not only am I able to contribute my social work skills and knowledge, I am also connecting our participants with greatly needed programs in the community. Upon my completion of interning, I hope to have a better grasp of grassroots organizations operations, asset mapping and minimizing gaps in services.
