Why did you choose to be a LSC Community Advisory Committee member?
Love Stanislaus County has made such a strong impact in the Central Valley. I want to be a part of the growth of this organization to make a difference in the community.
What do you love most about LSC?
The way LSC brings the community together, from different walks of life. This organization started off with an idea that has grown immensely to what it is today. It shows that it takes one thought to make a difference; if you want any idea/ project to grow you can't stop believing in it and doing everything you can to move it forward.
What do you love most about living in Stanislaus County?
Stanislaus County continues to surprise me. There are so many things to do in the county. It might not be readily at your fingertips like in larger cities, but it is there. You just need to be open to new conversations with new people, to learn about the events and businesses in our community.
In what ways do you participate in the community?
Through the Modesto Nuts, we participate in over a hundred different community events each year. With the Front Office, we volunteer as an organization to support our community. I am also a member of the 2022 Leadership Modesto cohort
