How did you find out about CYPN and how has it benefited your business or you personally? I first learned about CYPN from a colleague of mine. After learning about the opportunities CYPN provides local young professionals, I knew I wanted to get involved. As someone who does not live in Concord but spends my workdays and many of my evenings in Concord, CYPN has helped me meet other young professionals in the area. I really enjoy getting to know everyone, and look forward to continuing to build relationships. I recently joined the CYPN Steering Committee, and I am very excited to help CYPN grow and create new opportunities for young people throughout Concord.

Who is your greatest role model? My parents are my greatest role models. For as long as I can remember, both my parents have been involved in our local community. They are always the first to jump in when someone needs help, and the last to take credit. They taught me the importance of community.

Last book you’ve read? “The Ride of a Lifetime” by Bob Iger.
