Meet Tais

After three years of volunteering at the SESSC, Tais became our Volunteer Coordinator in May 2022. Her active role entails a variety of duties, such as organizing events, managing social media, and recruiting and training volunteers. Her busy 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”!
