How did you start getting involved with GET?
I got involved with GET Phoenix by true coincidence.
Newly relocated back to AZ, I was invited to a GET event by one of my friends...who ultimately stood me up-haha.
I decided it was a great opportunity to invite some colleagues instead so I was not alone and to still see what it was like. I ended up meeting a few present (and past) GET board members and our conversations were easy, insightful, and genuine.
From that moment on I knew I had to get to know more about these amazing & ambitious people.
Why did you decide to become a GET Phoenix Member?
I hope to learn as much as possible through this experience with GET and better develop my skills (hence why I joined).
In life the best work comes from a diverse mix of experiences, ideas, opinions and most of all passions. All the people in this organization are passionate about doing good work, doing it well, and making a difference (whatever that may look like)... so its a no brainier!
Fun fact about yourself?
I LOVE to scrapbook!
