Involvement in the community is important to me. I am especially interested in organizations that prioritize the empowerment and encouragement of girls and women. Here are some groups through which I can help improve the lives of females, potentially impacting the next generation of leaders.

Inspiring girls of all ages is important to me. And, I enjoy running. That’s why serving as a Board member for Girls on the Run is the perfect space for me. GOTR supports building social, emotional and physical skills in every girl while encouraging healthy habits for life.

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.

CHIEF is the only private membership network focused on connecting and supporting women executive leaders. Membership in this organization helps me to be the best leader that I can be so that I can in turn help prepare the next generation of female leaders.

And last but certainly not least, I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. AKA is the first Greek-letter organization founded by African-American women. Its purpose is to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college and women, to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain progressive interest in college life and to be of service to all mankind.
