“I got involved with Emerging Leaders United back in 2018 through my company when searching for ways to give back to my community. At ELU, we have a great balance of community works, professional development, and connecting with other professionals. I’m so grateful for getting to work with my community so closely and I love the people I serve with and serve for. Forsyth County has so many great things going on to improve the economic well-being of our community like Place Matters and Housing Matters. I’m excited to serve as Chair this year and I’m available to tell you more about what we’re doing.”
