What motivates you to give your time to Scouting?
I enjoy working with kids and I feel Scouting provides them with valuable and rewarding experiences, promotes teamwork and helps to build life skills. It’s also a great opportunity to spend time with my two sons involved in Cub Scouts. I also hope that seeing me and my husband volunteering instills the importance of service to others in our 3 children.

What aspects of Scouting do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy watching the Scouts work together on projects and receive recognition for their accomplishments.
