Role within Lincoln TeamMates:
I love representing TeamMates in and around Lincoln as I work to recruit new mentors and work with our website and marketing materials. It is also my privilege to work with many of TeamMates community partners. Additionally, I serve as a Match Support Specialist for a handful of elementary schools.
Top Five Gallup Strengths:
Who was your mentor? What lessons they taught stuck with you?
Dawna was one of my very first supervisors. She believed in me even more than I believed in myself. She sought out opportunities for me and trusted me with projects I didn’t know I was ready for. Because of Dawna, I am more self-confident and unafraid to jump into new learning. She continues to be a wonderful friend and champion.
What is one of your favorite memories of your own TeamMates match?
My love of music and theater was one of the reasons I was matched with my mentee. At our very first meeting when she was in elementary school, she requested that we spend our time outside on the playground, “because I always have a song inside of me and that’s the only place I’m allowed to let it out!” A girl after my own heart!
