The Rotary Club of
Pilot Knob
Chartered 2021

What do you appreciate most about Rotary?  More than anything, I appreciate the network of friends around the world who are equally dedicated to service above self. I have met so many friends through Rotary, most of whom I wouldn’t have met otherwise both locally and abroad.  Knowing those connections are there at any time when we need each other is a powerful thing.

If you could give just one reason for joining Rotary, what is it?  You will always get back ten-fold what you put into it. The project that brought me into Rotary was English-language mentoring with the women entrepreneurs in Costa Rica. It was late 2019 when I joined the project, not knowing the COVID was around the corner. Shelter-in-place was a struggle for me, personally.  And being able to speak with my mentee regularly about the struggles we were all enduring was such a gift.  Her resilience was incredible and I was inspired every day.  Read more about my personal experience here:

Tell us about one of your hobbies?  Healthy, plant-based cooking! Here are some of my favorites: Easy Tofu Pad Thai, Mole Enchiladas with Mexican Rice, and Eggplant Stacks with Cashew Ricotta. When so much of what I do for a living is long-term, I love the daily instant gratification of being able to enjoy a home cooked meal with my husband, Mike. I consider myself pesca-vegan, in that I don’t eat meat or dairy, only fish on occasion. I decided to do that for health reasons over 10 years ago, and now they say it’s also good for the environment, so there’s a tie-in with Rotary’s 7th are of focus now too!

Twenty years in the future, what do you think will be most memorable about your life now?  I am very grateful to be where I am in my career and personal life to be able to go back to school for my Executive MBA at the Austin satellite campus of Baylor University. The feeling of knowing I was signing up for 4 hours of class + 6 hours of homework each week for 21 months last year was daunting to say the least, but the support from my husband, family, Rotary family and more has made it a great experience.  Thinking back on how I was able to juggle it all will be quite the memory!  I graduate in May 2023 by the way – just 8 more months to go!
