The greater Sumner valley has my heart. This community is where my husband and I have grown our family, rooted friendships and built our careers. My heart beats to help the people located here THRIVE and build the life of their dreams. I have been fortunate enough to help orchestrate some amazing gatherings and fundraisers to help different individuals, non-profits and our local environment. Some of my favorite memories stem from serving the community that I know and love. Whether it be through gathering everyone to do a Sumner Sweep, collecting diapers for Step-by-Step, or serving at the Tacoma Rescue mission, this is ultimately why I do what I do. Having the opportunity to be a part of this towns progression and growth brings my heart more joy than I could put in words. Our community has helped me raise and grow my own family over the years, it only feels right to continue serving and giving back in any way I can. At its core, this city has a big heart for service and stands on the principles of kindness. That’s what makes this community different than any other around.
