Two years ago, when I started my NAAAP journey, I would never have imagined where it would take me. Three cities, three jobs and numerous friends later, I’m proud to be part of a movement of passionate, involved and amazing individuals known as NAAAP. As a founding member of NAAAP OKC, I was able to draw from history and know that I was investing in a 30+ year old and nearly 30 chapter strong organization. Since then, I’ve been to multiple events including the flagship Leadership Convention and ERG Summits and have met many lifelong friends with the same passions, interests and drive as me, many of whom I’ve worked with to pull off these events. Every city I’ve moved to since Oklahoma City, I was able to find NAAAP connections, networks and ultimately a new family. I’ve found great mentors and opportunities through NAAAP and continue to be inspired by those who lead it and are a part of it.
