Since ELGL is not a big fan of icebreakers and since we would rather not know what animal you want to be, this blog feature will serve as a means of introducing new members. While you won’t learn about their favorite animal, you will learn about their ideal Sunday morning, which dead people would they FaceTime with, and which song best describes their life.

What do you think about when you are driving to work/school?
The usual, getting more coffee, what does my day entail and what would I do if I possessed Wonder Women’s lasso of truth. That kind of stuff.

Sadly, it has been two years since I have gone to a concert. However, the concert I attended was Skillet and they were Awesome!

That is a hard question, no one thing stands out. I feel accomplished every day that my work has made someone else’s life just a little bit better.
What song best describes your life?
How you live by Point of Grace (not exactly my kind of music but the message is awesome).

I’m the co-founder and executive director of ELGL. I love my job. Other things I love: local government, my family, my dog Michael Jordan, sandwiches, naps, books, and skee-ball.
