My CGB Story

I was the new kid on the block and needed to find a solid nonprofit organization that believes in giving back to it’s community like I do when I just moved to Columbus, Ohio from Texas. I didn’t have to wait for long because from the very first Columbus Gives Back event that I volunteered for, I was hooked. I was introduced to group of young professionals who shared the same passion for giving like I do and the rest is history.

My favorite CGB event: Social Twists and monthly Happy Hours are two of the things that I look forward to the most. Our monthly Happy Hour is a chance to interact with all of the faces that continuously dedicate their time to represent the vision of Columbus Gives Back to the core without skipping a beat.

My hidden talent is…I’ve played table tennis all of my life.
