Meet Our Executive Board

The executive board oversees all the operations of The Wishes Foundation. From managing volunteers to keeping financial records to running our social media accounts, the executive board is the backbone of what our organization does.

Our executive board is 100% volunteer, meaning that none of our directors are compensated.

Favorite Quote: "Grab ahold of your dreams and make them come true. For you are the key to unlocking your own magic." - Happily Ever After Fireworks Show

  • I worked at Disney World in the spring 2018 DCP.

  • I snuck into a VIP Justin Timberlake concert last year!! Eep!

  • My greatest love is entertainment -- I love talking about live music, television, and my passion for it all!

Why I Love Wishes: There is no greater profession than the pursuit to make others happy. Wishes is about bringing joy to sweet children who need it most, and the effect is instantaneous. In my four years within Wishes, it has become the greatest extension of myself -- my most precious college experience.

Favorite Quote: "You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." -Winnie the Pooh

  • I had a Winnie the Pooh themed bedroom for all of my childhood.

  • In May of 2018, I studied abroad in Costa Rica.

  • I'm an advocate for the no-straws movement. I carry bamboo straws with me everywhere.

Why I Love Wishes: When you step into the shoes of one of these characters, it's obvious how much just a few moments with a child can mean. I can confidently say there is no feeling like the one you experience when a child recognizes your character and lights up with excitement. I love our Wishes family, and I love that I get to help this organization grow and reach more kids.
