Executive Director, Andrews Research & Education Foundation

Mentorship is important regardless of how old you are, whether you are giving mentorship or receiving mentorship from others.

What does being an executive director mean to you?

I am excited to be in a role where I am able to work with a team that has a passion for advancing medicine and education. It is truly inspiring to know that we are directly impacting people’s lives.

Why are organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida important to you?

I am passionate about mentorship and community involvement. Growing up, I was fortunate to have a strong support system. Because of the opportunities that the community provided for my family, we were able to build a strong foundation. Because of that, I want to be able to give another person the same opportunity.

How has your time at UWF helped you get to where you are today?

I truly believe that my time at UWF was instrumental in kick starting my career in the health care industry. The relationships I gained allowed me to explore opportunities that I think would not have been possible. The ability to apply my education to my day to day work was critical in my success.
