Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!
1. Why she ROCKS?!
“I always knew I wanted to volunteer at a hospital and work with children. I chose to volunteer at Children’s specifically because my sister had a ventricular septal defect when she was younger and was treated here. Ever since, my parents have talked about how evident it was that the staff really supported and cared about the whole family! I wanted to come see for myself how great of a place Children’s is!”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“Outside of volunteering, I love to spend my Saturdays at TCF Bank Stadium (Go Gophers!)”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“I have a 2 year old yellow Labrador named Mylo!”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“Since I have a weakness for chocolate, I would probably have Kit-Kats stuffed with Andes Mints, and put it all on a stick! Because I love the Great Minnesota Get-Together so much, I would probably name it “Kit-Kandes on a stick.”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“I think the Sibling Play Area epitomizes Children’s family-centered care. One of the best memories in the past year would have to be playing outside on the playground in Sibling Play! The kids are so creative… in one afternoon I was a mermaid who had to avoid the hot lava and jumping unicorns! It was really fun!”
Thank you for your ability to ‘play along’ and encourage creativity! Your enthusiasm is evident in the volunteer work you do!
