Involvement in the community is important to me. I am especially interested in organizations that prioritize the empowerment of girls and promote physical fitness in children. Here are some community groups that I have a direct role in effecting the lives of tomorrow’s leaders.

Girl Scouts is an organization that brings girls together from all walks of life to discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges. I am a troop leader for the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast (Hampton Roads, VA). I enjoy spending time with the girls in my troop, teaching them new skills and… selling Girl Scout cookies of course! Although I was not a Girl Scout growing up (though I wish I were), I recognize this organization as a pivotal piece of my daughters’ childhoods.

West Kempsville Youth Athletics (WKYA) was created and organized to provide age-appropriate recreational sports to children living in and around West Kempsville. I grew up in West Kempsville and now that I have children of my own, I look to WKYA to help teach and develop their athletic ability. I am currently the coordinator for cheerleading. If you’re interested in signing your child up for a sport, consider WKYA.
