I am excited to let you know that I will be the Rotary Club of Clarkston’s 2021 – 2022 President.

At the time I joined the Rotary Club of Clarkston in August of 2018, I was also making a significant transition in my career. In congruence with this career move, I was eager to become more connected to my community and to fulfill an internal desire to serve and help others. Being acquainted with many Rotarians, and having a mentor who is a strong advocate of the organization, I decided to seek them out as it sounded like a great fit for me. What I did not foresee upon joining, were the incredible friendships I would make and the knowledge I would gain along the way, for which I am most grateful.

I am honored to have now been tasked with being the president, and I intend to be intentional and proactive with this new responsibility. Over the next 12 months my goals include: fulfilling the Rotary International theme of “Serve to Change Lives”, bringing lots of excitement and energy to our local Rotary club, and advancing a new community project for our Clarkston kids. This specific project I am especially excited about, and I think you should be too. I will be implementing a special program for the Clarkston community kids as my Rotary “President’s Project”, so stay tuned to learn more about that in an upcoming blog post.
