“I enjoy helping families and children. I enjoy the little smiles we may put on a child’s face when they may have not had one for a long time. Showing families that anything is possible. Helping parents make better decision to better the lives of their children.”

"What I love about working here is that I finally feel like I belong somewhere. I have found my purpose in life. I've struggled for a long time to find out what I'm good at, and I feel like I found it. Working with today’s youth inspires me to come back each day, and hopefully one day I will have changed a person’s life in a small way."
