I recently joined the CALM team! I was hired at the end of September 2018.
I am the Development Assistant supporting all efforts of the Development and Executive team. My first project is managing our upcoming holiday giving program, Adopt a Family, where donors are matched with CALM families in need of support during the holiday season to fulfill wish lists.
Many things about CALM inspire me! I am inspired by the determination and relentless passion for all aspects of serving and healing the children and families who have experienced trauma in the community. CALM creates a safe space for these families to thrive and I wholeheartedly support and am energized by this mission and service.
My favorite thing so far has been seeing the children’s artwork on our walls and hearing the impact of the work in family success stories. Additionally, being relatively new to the Santa Barbara area, I’ve enjoyed meeting all the people involved in the organization, from colleagues to community ambassadors.
If I could do one thing to make kids’ lives better, I would make sure that each child is afforded the feeling of unconditional love.
