As an Ambassador...
What was it about being Captain that appealed to you?
I have volunteered with the AAO for a few years now. There are so many amazing people within this organization. I was honored to be asked to be part of the first ever all female team.
What has been most memorable so far in your year?
The PEOPLE! I have already met the most amazing people - starting with my team! I also love meeting new ambassadors and seeing friends at each event. It's amazing to see the difference in an ambassador from the beginning of their year to the end - to be even one small part of that transition is so rewarding!
