I am from Denver, Colorado- recently moving back after spending some time out in West Virginia where I attended West Virginia University to play volleyball. I have my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Sport Management and Business Administration. My graduate program needed a non-profit to support and fundraise for, and we chose EndCAN and helped contribute financially and in marketing of the Give 5 program with the development and sale of athletic bracelets. My current role is with the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce as the Business Development Manager where I handle all of our memberships and partnerships in the community. I am passionate about ending child abuse and neglect because every child deserves the chance to grow up in a home situation that sets them up for success in our world in whatever they choose to do.
I live in Florida and have an Indian background. I attend the University of Central Florida and have a major in Psychology and a minor in Political Science. I am actively involved in research and volunteering for Crisis Textline and the Mental Health Association of Central Florida. Next, I want to get a PhD in Clinical Psychology and become a therapist. I care about ending child abuse and neglect because they have huge negative impacts on mental health, and I would like to help prevent that.
