Because the mission is about lasting change, the kind of change that impacts you now but also impacts generations. It’s about the dignity and power of work, which leads to confidence, which leads to finding the ability to improve all of the elements of your life. I see my service on the board as an opportunity to give back a small portion of the blessings that have been bestowed upon me.

Why do you love Goodwill and do you choose to serve on the board?
Goodwill believes in the power of people - both individually and collectively. And they put those beliefs to work every day improving the lives of their clients, customers, and employees. I believe in the life-changing power of education and have spent my career fostering better access to higher education.

Vacasa
Why do you love Goodwill and why do you choose to serve on the board?
I serve on the Goodwill board because I really believe in the work Goodwill does. Giving people the tools and skills, they need to be independent and productive is an amazing gift for the person, the local businesses and the community. The extra bonus of having the retail stores is great for the community as well. People need affordable clothing and household goods; jobs are created and the revenue goes back to programming for the community. What's not to love about Goodwill? The reach of the Goodwill programs is so broad and the creativity in developing new programs is terrific. What I love most about Goodwill is we target programming to where the needs are and adjust as required. The responsiveness to the community is just amazing.
