the705Board Elections


Originally from Lake Charles, I moved to Lafayette 5 years ago for school and never left. Lafayette became home very quickly. I enjoy the “work hard, play hard” mentality and friendliness of the people who live in the region. I started my career with LAGCOE (Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition) and now am with One Acadiana. I take pride in where I live and aim to make Acadiana better through volunteering.

Personal Statement

I feel Acadiana has embraced me and I intend to return the favor by working and volunteering to make our home better. The Acadiana region has so much to offer and is poised for growth. I’ve shifted my career to focus on making Acadiana a better place for families, business growth and talent attraction. Being on the 705 Board will afford me the opportunity to serve an organization that aligns with my beliefs and gave me an outlet to channel my passions. I have innovative ideas to push 705 into the future.
