Place of service: Boise Young Professionals Executive Chair

Why I Serve

I love my hometown of Boise, Idaho. I think we have something truly special here–the culture, the amenities, the size, even the kindness of our residents. Any time there is an opportunity to promote our city, enhance it or collaborate to help someone else love it like I do, I jump on it! I serve as the executive chair of Boise Young Professionals (BYP) and lead a leadership team of 20+.

How I Serve

BYP is one of the largest, most active young professional organizations in the country with nearly 2,000 members. Our mission is to attract, develop and retain a talented workforce by working with young professionals (21-40) and providing opportunities to connect, be empowered and engage with the community. Last year we led a 10-year celebration that featured 10 months of special events all designed to showcase Boise’s talented young professionals and introduce young professionals to various industries in the Treasure Valley.
