“I believe that I have been very blessed with opportunities and have had role models along the way that supported me as I traveled my personal path.  This critical support has allowed me to reach many of my personal goals.  Knowing the impact of role models, it is important to me to give back to the community and to support young girls and women as they travel their own unique path.”
