What is your experience with Forward Montana, or our sister organization Forward Montana Foundation, and why is our work important to you?

Making a difference is my lifes goal

Why are you interested in joining the Forward Montana Board?

I want to do the best I can to help.

What skills, characteristics, experience, or insight do you have that would be a valuable addition to the board?

I have great ideas, I have lived in MT for more than 15years, I know may resources, and I personally feel I know that I can be a great contributor.

What experience do you have fundraising, and what is your comfort level with asking for money?

I did bake sales in school and helped the soccer teams raise money. I know how to bring a conversation around to what is needed.

Being a board member requires a time commitment to meetings, phone calls, occasional events, etc. Will you be able to fulfill these time commitments? Does anything give you pause?

Yes, I can absolutely make time.

Good board members invest their time into Forward Montana, are ambassadors for the organization, are familiar with the work of the organization, and are responsive to other board members and staff. How will you go above and beyond being a good board member? How will you be a great board member?

I am great with time management so I will almost always be in time. I work in an environment where mediation is needed so that is not a problem. I am a great artistic side and I contribute a lot to my every day life by being balanced and helping others.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I would devote myself fully to this cause without pause. I strive to make a difference and I am grateful for this opportunity. Thank you.
