Support my Service Trip to Nicaragua!

Hey everyone! I am very excited to share with you all a great service experience that I have been chosen to be a part of in the upcoming year. In January 2014, I will be traveling down to León, Nicaragua with 15 other Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy students from Quinnipiac to treat children and adults with special needs. As I get ready to begin my final year of the Doctoral program here at Quinnipiac, I look forward to this trip being an opportunity to expand my knowledge as a future healthcare professional.
Service has become a very important aspect of my life and although I still struggle to find ways to better myself as a person, I know that through my service, I can better at least one other persons life in the process. Service is about giving yourself up to walk along side someone through their struggles, distress, and hardships. I recently participated in a Habitat for Humanity service trip down in North Carolina and had the pleasure of helping to build a home for a family in need. The people I met along the way (and the things I have learned) have left me with the craving to do more!
My passion and dream is to work with children with special needs. Although I have had some experience with this sort of "work," this trip will offer me an experience greater than anything elseI could imagine!
This service trip has been a absolute dream of mine since I first heard about it at Quinnipiac because I realized how much this trip truly mirrored the very goals I have and the experiences I would love to look back on in the future. I am inviting you to this page to ask for your support in order for me to be able to a part of this journey. As I enter my 6th year ofschool (3rd year of graduate school) I find myself dipping a littttllleeee low into my funds (low is an understatement.)


Any donation (big or small) is greatly appreciated and would mean the world to me! All donations I receive will go towards my trip costs (which include, airfare, food, and other miscellaneous fees for the trip.) Any extra money that I raise will be put towards buying toys and supplies to bring down with me for the children and families we will be helping!


Check out the video from last years delegation that went down for the same trip!! :)




Thank you so much for your time! :)
