How did you connect again with Hope Air in the last couple years?
I am so thankful to have reconnected with Hope Air in the last couple of years. Two years ago, I received a call from Hope Air to ask me to be a guest speaker at the Ham, Eggs, and Hope breakfast in St. John’s. Without hesitation, I agreed to attend. While at this meeting, I came into contact with Jim Burton, who organized the breakfast event. I now work for him at RE/MAX Infinity, and I got to attend the Ham, Eggs, and Hope breakfast again as a guest. It was not long after that when Jim asked how I would feel about joining the Hope Air Advisory Council, of course, this was not an opportunity I could not pass up.
What appealed to you about joining the Hope Air advisory council?
Joining the Hope Air advisory council has been such a big accomplishment in my eyes, to be able to give back to this organization for everything it did for me. It was something I never thought I would be able to do. Now, I sit on the council along with so many other amazing and inspiring people, in a position to raise awareness and help others.
What do you hope to accomplish as a member of the Hope Air advisory council?
During my time on the advisory council, there is one thing I truly hope to accomplish and that is to help others who are in the position I once was. I hope to display the gratitude I feel towards Hope Air by bringing as much light to the amazing things Hope Air offers as is possible. I strive to tell people what Hope Air does and how they can help. If I can use my knowledge and personal experience in any way to help someone else, that is exactly what I am going to do
