I love being actively involved in the community. During my four years of membership in the705, I have grown significantly as a professional, and attribute a great deal of that to this fantastic organization. Serving on the board has given me the opportunity to meet some remarkable people, while shaping the705 programming for 2016. As board members, we have an obligation to provide meaningful and engaging content to our members. It is essential that we present opportunities for our participants to connect and develop relationships with leaders in Acadiana. The705 is unique and truly offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to network, have influential conversations over coffee, or just want to help keep our city clean, this group can deliver. I am a huge advocate for the705, and would like to continue my journey on the BOD. If elected, I promise to bring innovative ideas and strategies to promote the organization.
