Howdy! My name is Isabella Hong. I am one of the Community Impact Directors, where I oversee the Health & Education Initiatives. I have been at United Way for about 5 months now and was in child care services prior to my current role.
I lived in Texas for over 20 years before coming to the Chippewa Valley, so I'm a Southern gal at heart. I received my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Houston in 2014 with the intent on becoming a physical therapist. While serving as an AmeriCorps member, I discovered my passion for supporting the community. I went on to complete my Master of Social Work with a concentration in Community and Administrative Practice from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2020.
Outside of the office, I enjoy playing video games on my computer, going on hikes, or spending time with my cat—Maple. I have survived my first Wisconsin winter and cannot wait to explore the natural beauty of this wonderful state this summer.
United Way has always stood out to me as an organization that makes an impact; it has been my goal to work for this great organization ever since I was a graduate student. I am thrilled to be a part of the great team here, and I look forward to working with community organizations and members to create a positive change in the Chippewa Valley. I encourage everyone to give to their local United Way and be a part of the change in their communities.
