I joined Pernet in November 2019.  I have 15 years of experience in fundraising, event management, networking and relationship building, community engagement, and building effective volunteer groups.

I love the diversity of the people in Worcester and it gives me joy to know that I am part of a team that is making a difference in the lives of many families.  From attending Worcester State University, volunteering on the board of Uhai for Health, serving as a Sunday School teacher, and participating in Leadership Worcester (Class of 2021), I love connecting people with the resources they need.  My lived experience in Worcester helps me understand the needs in our community and am glad to be part of a team working to strengthen families.

I enjoy attending the many festivals in Worcester and surrounding towns, growing my own vegetables and learning about different cultures, and tasting foods from around the world.
