What did you do before working at Make-A-Wish® Georgia?
I graduated from Auburn University (War Eagle!) with a Bachelor’s in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing. I then interned in Atlanta with an entertainment and lifestyle public relations firm and worked with some exciting clients like Broadway in Atlanta and LEGOLAND Discovery center! I then worked for a regional CPA firm as a Marketing Coordinator. After 5 years, I decided to follow my heart and find a career that fuels my creative spirit and fulfills my passion for bringing joy to others!
What's your favorite part of the job?
When I first considered the Wish Coordinator position, my gut reaction was, “You mean I could actually grant wishes like a Fairy Godmother??” But just like the Make-A-Wish mission states, “wishes are more than just a nice thing.” I’m excited to be a part of such an impactful opportunity to bring joy to kids and families and help bring their wishes to life!
What would your wish be?
I would love to perform in a Broadway musical OR be the voice of a character in a Disney/Pixar movie!
