Why did you join ACFE? I was looking at doing more volunteer work for causes that I am passionate about. Devon reached out at the perfect time when she asked if I knew anyone who would be interested in helping out with their social media. After researching the company and seeing all that they were doing for Breast Cancer Research I knew it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. This organization is doing such amazing work and I could not be happier to play a small role in that.
Do you have any personal experience with breast cancer? I have had a few people in my life suffer from breast cancer. I won’t go into detail but I do this for them.
What is your hope for ACFE? I hope to see them continue to grow and exceed the goals that they set for themselves. To watch their community of support expand and spread to others not necessarily in the Los Angeles area.
