Meet Tais

Hailing from Brazil, and fluent in Portuguese Tais became our Volunteer Coordinator in May 2022 after two years of volunteering at the SESSC. Tais understands how important volunteers are to the work we do. Her active role entails organizing events, managing social media, and recruiting volunteers. Her life outside of our Center includes swimming, hiking, and lots of family activities. She also loves animals — those close to Tais call her the “Cat Whisperer”!
