I started with FIRST® in 2011-2012 volunteering as the Safety Mentor for the FRC team 2486 Coconut’s that my son and daughter participated on in Flagstaff, AZ, then I tested out volunteer roles for the FRC events (safety glass attendant, field queuer, and scorekeeper). In September 2017, I became a FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA for Arizona and served for five years. I also volunteer and enjoy being the lead scorekeeper for the FTC and FRC events in Arizona. I provide software training/support for FTC judge volunteers to utilize the digital scoring/judging platform implemented during COVID that continues today. In January 2023, I started full-time employment with FIRST as the Operations Coordinator working remotely in Arizona.
I enjoy spending time with my family and pups at the lake, camping (rv’ing) in the mountains, and drag racing.
