Why did you join the Junior League?
Once I left public accounting, I was no longer traveling every week for work and had more free time available. I made a conscious decision that I wanted to use my free time to give back to the community. As we all know JLO is an amazing organization, committed to promoting voluntarism. It was a perfect fit.

Meeting my husband, Casey. Life. Changing. Moment. There are no words I could write to adequately explain how remarkable he is. Without him, I would not be able to put in the hours I do at the office and volunteer the amount I do, while having two small children at home. He is truly my life partner.
