Finding joy in the accomplishments of others
The AmeriCorps Program originally brought me to Habitat for Humanity. It’s been a wonderful ride since then. One of my most endearing memories was when I was walking through a house with a future homeowner. She had previously been homeless with her two children and had worked full time to provide for them. The joy I saw in her face reinforced to me that I was in the right profession. Having a stable home is crucial to the well-being of a family. And in helping provide that home, we empower people to change their lives.
Personal space: Reading, kayaking, going to the beach or a natural spring, and spending time with my family.
