Q: Why did you decide to join the mission of Make-A-Wish?
A: My dad recruited me as a wish granter three years ago and I absolutely fell in love with it! I was looking for another way I could get involved in the foundation. Then I fell upon a Wish Coordinator position! Although I am still within the first couple months of my employment, I feel as though I have been with Make-A-Wish for years. I feel so welcome and everyone is excited to be working for such an amazing foundation that really makes a difference in people’s lives.
Q: What is the most rewarding experience you've had with Make-A-Wish?
A: The most rewarding part about working with Make-A-Wish is when I get to hear from wish kids and their families on how the wish went. I love hearing the stories and seeing the pictures from wishes! It feels good to know we are truly making a difference in people’s lives for the better.
Q: What has been your favorite part in working with Make-A-Wish?
A: My favorite part of working for Make-A-Wish is collaborating with an amazing group of people that all have the same core mission. We are all moving towards the same goal and work together to do it! I never could have imagined being employed at Make-A-Wish, making a difference, or working with such an awesome group of people! I love coming into work every day knowing how important our jobs are to others!
