How is CFA’s work important to you?
As an Arizona native, I see the work that the Center for the Future of Arizona is doing as essential. I love my home state and I want to see it improve for fellow Arizonans and future generations.
What do you love about Arizona?
My favorite thing about Arizona is the diversity in landscape. I grew up camping and hiking all over the state and love that I am able to drive a maximum of four hours in any direction to experience saguaros, snow, infamous waterfalls, canyons, rivers and vast deserts.
What’s your story? What was your path to CFA?
After graduating with my degree in communications from Arizona State University, I dove headfirst into the world of digital marketing and never looked back. I have a lot of experience working with start-up companies and have managed digital marketing strategies for a variety of companies in various industries. I found my way back to ASU in 2019 and worked as the marketing and communications coordinator for a small school before I discovered CFA in 2021. I am currently getting my graduate degree in digital audience strategies at ASU and am looking forward to graduating in May 2022.
How does your work impact CFA?
As a storyteller and marketer, my work will help share the efforts of everyone in CFA and hopefully reach more Arizonans who are interested in being a part of strengthening Arizona’s future.
When did you first consider Arizona home to you?
I was born and raised in the Phoenix area so I have always considered Arizona home. I feel most at home when I am in nature, especially in Sedona and the Mogollion Rim.
