Philanthropy & Volunteerism

One of my favorite quotes: "Service To Others Is The Rent You Pay For Your Room Here On Earth." - Muhammad Ali. 

My Grandfather always told me "if you can change the life of one person, you can change the world." I live each day by these words. I am lucky enough to accomplish a lot in my life. For that, I believe it is my duty to give back to the community and the individuals who have supported me. Here are a few of the organizations and causes that I have the pleasure of serving and supporting.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central PA
Jan 2023 - Present

The Ronald McDonald House® is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We also support families through the Ronald McDonald Family Room® and Hospitality Cart at Penn State Children’s Hospital, as well as, the Ronald McDonald Hospitality Kiosk at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital.
