Honored to Serve the KANDU Community

Posted on : 03 Mar 2021 | No Comments

I am honored that the board of directors has entrusted me to carry on the important mission and vision of KANDU Industries. The passion I have for helping those in need has been ingrained from childhood. I was fortunate enough to have parents that instilled those values, so jumping in and rolling up my sleeves has always been a way of life. It is obvious to me, the short time I have been here, that KANDU’s clients also benefit from people with those same values… people like you.

The clients have been so warm and welcoming, the staff is top notch, and the board is a very skilled and talented team of individuals. What a dynamic environment to get to work in!

I look forward to being part of a team that makes wonderful things happen for KANDU and for the communities we serve. As we look to the future, there is a lot to be excited for and I feel increasingly fortunate to be a part of it all.
