What do you love about winter in the South Bay?
“As an East Coast native, I appreciate the moderate climate. I enjoy warm comfort food at local restaurants, visiting with local proprietors, and spending time with friends and family. Our community does so much to bring families together, and I am especially grateful to be a part of a community that genuinely cares for one another. I am especially looking forward to reconnecting with people who I haven’t seen since pre-pandemic.”
What have been your proudest moments during the recent crisis?
“Last week my 4-year-old son, Jack, said, ‘Mom, we have to think about other people. We can’t only think about ourselves.’ Hearing those words from your child would make any parent proud. It makes me feel like we are getting through to him. It is so important to my husband, Ryan, and I to teach Jack the importance of giving.”
What do you hope to achieve in 2022?
“I would like to devote more time to teaching financial literacy programs to teens and young adults.”
