Giving back to my community keeps me active, engaged, and provides an opportunity to show my appreciation for all of the amazing gifts and opportunities I have been provided in this life.

Past Charitable Organizations
Though I am no longer currently involved with these organizations, I fully support their efforts.
I am proud to have served as a board member of the Westfield Education Foundation.
The Westfield Education Foundation is a 501c(3) not-for-profit entity created in 1986 to serve as a philanthropic resource to provide scholarships to Westfield seniors and to provide grants to Westfield teachers. In 2018, the Foundation awarded $44,150 to seniors at Westfield Washington High School. WEF has now awarded $1,150,000 in college scholarships and classroom teaching grants in Westfield Washington Schools. We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of community members, business owners, parents, and school administrators and we have one paid staff member.
The TechPoint Foundation for Youth is committed to inspiring our state’s underserved K-12 students to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). As a member of the Program Committee, I worked on a committee for Enabling STEM Grants to underserved populations, the State Robotics tournament, and more.
Timmy Global Health is an international non-profit organization with headquarters based in Indianapolis. Timmy Global Health expands access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today’s most pressing global health challenges. During my time at PolicyStat, I worked to lead the coordination and administration of the annual Timmy Trivia Night fundraiser, preparation for the Timmy Global Health Gala, and annual supply drives to provide materials to remote clinics.
Gift of Water provides affordable water filtration systems to underserved populations in Haiti from their Carmel, IN-based offices. I have partnered with Gift of Water to pre-assemble filtration systems before distribution.
