My passion for volunteering started with Port Washington Fire Department, where I volunteered as an EMT. In 2010, I volunteered with Blanca’s House, a nonprofit organization that travels to third-world countries to provide free medical care, as well as Global Clinic and LJDR Davis Foundation. I have participated in 12 medical mission trips. and have traveled to Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Jamaica and Guatemala as part of a team that provides life-changing surgeries for adults and children. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing patients and their families smile.
