Member Spotlight: Mary-Kate Lange

Mary-Kate Lange is the Volunteer Support & Wish Assignment Coordinator at Make-A-Wish Iowa. She has a B.S. in Journalism and Mass Communications with a Public Relations emphasis and a minor in Child, Adult and Family Services from Iowa State University
Interesting Facts: 
I love a good gingham pattern, running for a cause, and listening to live music with a Chardonnay in hand.
What she loves and hates:
I am a big fan of all things Iowa State. My dad and I attend every home football and basketball game. On the other hand, my dislikes revolve around the Iowa Hawkeyes; anything black and gold gets a hard pass.
What she's passionate about:
I am passionate about the city of Des Moines and bettering the lives of all who call it home. I love supporting local businesses and can be spotted shopping at the Downtown Farmer's Market or sipping on a cup o' joe at Scenic Route. I dream of one day being a small business owner and applaud those who have taken the leap!
Favorite and least favorite food:
My favorite food is a good protein pancake, and being lactose-intolerant, anything dairy lands on the least favorite list.

What else you should know:
I'm a big believer in YPs and their involvement in nonprofit organizations; I feel strongly that we make a difference in our communities by donating our time and talents. As the volunteer coordinator for Make-A-Wish Iowa, I seek out opportunities to engage young professionals. I live my life with this quote in mind and encourage you to do the same... "Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so."

    Stunning site! Do you have any accommodating clues for trying essayists? I’m wanting to begin my own site soon yet I’m somewhat lost on everything. Would you prompt beginning with a free stage like Wordpress or go for a paid alternative? There are such a large number of alternatives out there that I’m totally overpowered .. Any thoughts? Welcome it!
