What do you see as your role in making Topeka a better place to live and work? Beyond striving to make a difference in Topeka through the opportunities afforded through my professional career, I am proud to serve the community and its youth through extensive involvement in the Topeka Active 20-30 Club and my other civic volunteerism activities. The children of this community are the future of Topeka and at the end of the day, I can take a bit of comfort knowing that my philanthropic efforts are helping to provide opportunities to kids that may not have been afforded to them otherwise. Where do you see Topeka in 10 years? Not being a Topeka native, it is my perception that this city has struggled to establish its identity and mark its place on the map in the past. But this is well on its way to change. The community is committed to reinvesting in itself, both in its physical landscape and embracing all the features that define what makes us great and sets us apart from other places.
