Hometown: Sandy Spring, Md.. 

Occupation: Interior designer

How long have you served with the Enzler Society? Three years. 

Why did you join the Enzler Society? I joined Enzler Society because it provides great volunteer opportunities to participate in around D.C. with people my age who have similar interests and values. Aside from volunteering, the Enzler Society has offered great networking opportunities for young professionals in the area with similar interests and organizes fun events like quarterly happy hours to bring people together. I’ve really enjoyed both the philanthropic and social aspects this group has to offer and it’s been a great way to stay connected to the Catholic Community in DC.

What’s your favorite Enzler Society activity? One of my favorite Enzler Society activities has been taking the young men of the Youth Transitional Program on outings around the city, especially to different museums followed by lunch nearby. Volunteers and YTP clients alike have all really enjoyed experiencing the museums DC has to offer and discussing each other’s favorite parts over a great lunch afterward!

What’s your favorite memory? My favorite memory with the Enzler Society is our mini-golf day we had at Hains Point with the young men of YTP last spring. Everyone had such a fun time mini-golfing and enjoyed hot dogs and burgers at the golf course!

What are you looking forward to in 2020? I’m looking forward to the new volunteer opportunities 2020 will bring for the Enzler Society both with YTP and through other opportunities provided by Catholic Charities.
