I was raised in the beautiful region of North Idaho, And at a young age I saw a need within the young adult community for positive role models, for peers and mentors to influence the impressionable. I saw a need for the ones who seemed lost and lacking direction. I began to mentor before I even knew what mentoring was. This journey truly began at the skate park and the ski hills. Throughout my twenties, I invested my personal time in the youth of my community. It wasn’t until my early 30s that it actually became my profession. This has been my profession for the last 14 years. My experience with mentoring young adults has gone on for over half of my life. I am invested in changing lives. I truly believe lending an ear and giving your time to an individual in need or crisis will change their life forever.
