Community Involvement

My Why

I give back because I enjoy it and I believe we all can do small things that can make a bigger impact. I made a commitment to myself when I was younger, that when I was in a position to truly give back to underserved communities, I will do it. I'm proud to have started these efforts and have grown them since I was in my early 20s. 

That is why I decided to serve as the Co-Chair for the San Diego Network Diversity and Inclusion Council for two years. Our mission as a council is to create a more diverse and inclusive environment, which in turn we will be able to better serve our diverse communities.

I have also held a leadership position as a Field Director since 2019 where I focus on the identification, attraction and development of new financial representatives in San Diego.  

Charitable Organizations that I support include:

Our Lady's School

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace

Diversity and Inclusion

Human Rights Campaign

LGBT Center

Mario Lemieux Foundation

Alex's Lemonade Stand

Junior Achievement

Nature's Whisper Family Wellness Center
