​I got involved because I feel compelled to protect those who cannot protect themselves as well as families who need a helping hand to make it through a difficult time.

​​All children need loving attention from their earliest days, and especially those who live in stressful environments. All efforts of early intervention are important and I want to help in the ways that are possible for me.

​I have always been a firm believer in volunteering to help those in need; and I felt as though becoming a board member at Grace's Place was a great opportunity to help give back to my community.

I have chosen to be involved in Graces Place because of their mission to keep children safe.  There are too many stories today that are heartbreaking and involve abuse/neglect of the most vulnerable, children.  I want to be part of the solution. Being a parent is a tough job especially if you don't have resources to help.

Volunteering with senior citizens for the last 8 years, and knowing the barriers they face, I was amazed at the number of children in crisis. Being involved with Grace's Place is a great way to outreach to those children in need and raise awareness towards their struggles.

One of my greatest passions is that I love kids!    I  was drawn to the mission of helping families during a crisis so children do not suffer abuse or neglect.
