There is nothing more important to me than family. I raised my three adult children on my own, so I understand the life created by absentee fathers. In turn, acting as the Outreach Coordinator for Western Virginia is a full circle purpose in my life to assist Virginian families in accessing every right afforded to newborns.
She loves children and getting to see newborn bundles of joy.
Her favorite part about this job is networking and strategizing with people who are also passionate about helping families and children!
