Favorite thing about Pensacola:

Born and raised in Pensacola, I’ve grown to fall in love with our community. So much has changed for the better over the last 10 years. Though we still have a lot of work to be done, I can proudly say Pensacola is a place that cultivates change through meaningful conversations and actions. It’s a community that’s quick to take action after a crisis and help friends and neighbors. Pensacola is my home, and there are so many incredible people that make this place so special.

Favorite thing about PYP:

My favorite thing about PYP is its people. I strive to surround myself with those who are passionate about growth and making an impact. PYP is the hub for goal getters, pioneers, and passionate individuals who will together create a better future for our community.

What do you feel YPs can do to be a catalyst for positive change in our community?

Lead with the change you want to see. I believe positive change starts with me as a parent. Outside of my day job, my most important role is being the mama to two kiddos. I have to raise them to be good human beings, teaching and showing them the power of loving everyone and being kind. As young professionals, parents, sisters, brothers, mentors, friends, it's our job to lead the children in our community to be good and do good. It starts with us.

If you know a PYP member who has gone above and beyond in the organization and our community, please nominate them to be a PYP All-Star!
