      1. What brought you to Austin and how long have you been here?
        I moved to Austin for work. I’ve been at the Austin Diagnostic Clinic (Circle C) for 2 years now and have really enjoyed it!
      2. How did you get connected to AYC?
        When I moved to Austin, I was looking for ways to connect with other young professionals. AYC volunteered one weekend for It’s My Park Day (park cleanup). It was there that I was able to meet people who were on the Leadership Service Committee and I wanted to get more involved right away. It’s always great to connect with others who want to give back to the community.
      3. What are you involved with in AYC AND what is your favorite part of AYC?
        I’m currently in Leadership Service Committee. I love being able to connect with other like minded young professionals who want to develop themselves personally and professionally. I love all the events that AYC puts on, from Casino Social to all of Imagine Committee’s events to Happy Hours/Coffee Connect, there is definitely something for everyone.
