Dear CUP Family,

It's 2017 and officially CUP's 10th anniversary year! What an exciting time to embark on this journey with all of you to celebrate CUP's enduring legacy and define our vision for the next ten years. I am profoundly grateful for the trust that has been placed in me to lead such an incredible organization.

This is the role of a lifetime for me because my passions are people, advocacy, and social impact. Over my nearly 20-year career, I've discovered that my purpose is to create meaningful opportunities that support personal and professional growth, inspire service and promote a playing field that is even and inclusive.
