Special Moments in REI: The opportunity to meet and grow with an amazing group of professionals and partners. Every day that I work with the REI team, I feel embraced with compassion. Every day is a new adventure and opportunity to grow. I am very grateful and appreciative to have this opportunity with this team!
What I love about ECU: The drive and motivation the students have to ECU’s motto of “servire”. Every student I have served with or worked with has a story of how someone has helped them and how they want to be that person for others. ECU students are strong, self-starters that are willing to do the hard work to make our world a better place and I’m happy to be a part of that journey!
