More About Destini
I enjoy playing tennis and spending quality time with family.
What has prepared me for my new role
I have worked in social services for over 5 years. I am particularly prepared for working in the Thrive program because my experience is in serving at-risk youth and adults.
Why did I choose Christian City?
I believe Christian City aligns with my goals in serving youth and wanting to make a difference in someone life and being able to see the changes made. That’s fulfilling!!
Why am I excited about my new role?
Excitement is just one word to describe my feelings. I believe in the Thrive Program and because I trust the process and the structure of the program, I know Thrive will do well. I am excited to work with the youth and assist them in navigating through life.
I was the 1st Homecoming Queen at my High School.
