During my time at Ronald McDonald House, it was my responsibility to welcome families, assist with check in procedure and make families feel at home, assist with House operations and upkeep, facilitate intake and documentation of donations and assist with managing volunteer groups


Being able to look back and see all the families that I got to help when they stayed at the house. It is such a rewarding experience to help those who might not be able to help themselves in such a critical time in their lives.

What advice would you give?

Dont be afraid to go out of your comfort zone!
