What do you do at NDSC?
Development Coordinator for the Eastern Region of North Dakota. My position is dedicated to developing relationships with current members and assisting with any questions and concerns they may have, from membership billing to training. I attend and support local safety groups, assist with events in eastern ND, hand deliver welcome packets to new members and help promote our annual safety conference.

Why is NDSC’s mission to prevent injuries and save lives important to you?
I feel that our mission is important for a few reasons. One – it keeps us all focused and working as a team. But most importantly, we have all had a loss in our lives and if we can help to save just one life through our training, we can lay our head down at the end of the day and say it was a good day.

Name one really interesting thing about yourself.
I am also a college student, pursuing a degree in law. It is my goal to be attorney.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
Sicily, Italy. I have always wanted to go there! I am Italian and Sicily is where my grandfather was born.

What is your biggest strength and your biggest weakness?
My strengths include organization, staying on task and my work ethic. Weakness – not taking a break!

What are your hobbies?
Being a mom and caretaker of my family.

What store would you pick to max out your credit card?
Any shoe store that sells high heels!

What’s on your bucket list?
Driving cross country in an RV. Going to Hawaii.

Favorite singer/band/song?
‘Grey Street’ by Dave Mathews Band, ‘I’m Alive’ by Dave Matthews and Kenny Chesney, ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry
