What is your favorite Scouting memory?
Going to OACT with our vice chief Dirk Smelser and spent 2 weeks truly experiencing what OA and Scouting can offer.
What are your biggest goals in your position for 2019?
I want to reach out to more people through social media and communications between the three lodges and make sure each lodge has all the resources they need to Thrive!
If you could go to any scouting event from any time, what would it be?
I really miss World Scout Jamboree. I would love to go back and do the same thing over, over and over.
