Educating, connecting and energizing leadersto serve and improve the community.


I have always had a deep love of Winston-Salem. However, my experience with LWS has led me to feel more CONNECTED to Winston-Salem….not only to its past and present, but now, to its future. Through the experiences that we have shared, the knowledge we have gained, the plans that we have set and the relationships that we have built, I look forward to being an active contributor to the evolving success of Winston-Salem!
