What were you doing before working with World Bicycle Relief?
I was working as an AP Clerk for SRAM, just across the room from the WBR crew in Chicago.
What drew you to World Bicycle Relief?
The work and the message. A bike is a powerful tool and it was enriching to be near such great work. I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
What is the best part of your job?
Knowing that my work helps donors engage with their passions and helps more people in the field receive life-changing transportation.
What is the most difficult part of your job?
The most difficult part is getting used to the workload; we’re a small team. Also learning the ins and outs of our programming so that I can best answer questions from supporters.
What is your dream for the organization?
My dream is that distance will no longer be a withholding factor that keeps people from taking control of their lives.
What is one random fact about you that no one on staff knows?
Volleyball is my all time favorite sport. I’m overdue for a match. Anyone want to play?!
