“I have a lifelong passion for La Salle and staying connected to and actively building alumni communities. There is nothing more beautiful than the lifelong relationship a person has with their family, their partner, their friends or the college that instilled the value of giving back. La Salle is more than a place that sparked my career – it’s an experience, an identity and a community that continues to nourish my mind and soul. As a proud alum, I believe in telling my La Salle story, donating to give students the scholarship opportunities I was afforded and saying 'yes' to playing an important role. For the next three years, the most important role I’d like to play is representing fellow alumni as a board member.”
