To give back to the community that has supported me, I often volunteer my time and services. In my spare time, I am a trained spotter and Weather Ready Nation Ambassador, member of Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park and often volunteer for local events such as the annual trash cleanups.

A portion of income is donated monthly to The National Park Foundation and annually to Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park, a 501(c)3 non-profit.
Here are a few photos I took during the 2017 Cave Sing, hosted by Friends. This is a free event where visitors enjoy the natural acoustics reflecting the harmonious vocals of a choir with the ambiance of a Christmas tree and candles. After, free cookies, cider and a visit from Santa is provided at The Lodge across the bridge from the Visitor Center.
