What’s one thing we should know that makes you or your organization unique?

I’ve had a very blessed life overcoming many obstacles and challenges to get where I am. But by far one of the most difficult yet best things that happened in my life was in 2018 I was diagnosed with Cancer. My journey with cancer while relatively brief profoundly shaped my life as it is today and in a very positive way.

Name 2 people that you believe to be trustees in our community and how has their impact helped Jacksonville become who we are today?

Jacksonville and Northeast Florida are blessed to have had so many people in the past and today who are impacting our community. One of my current areas of intention is learning more about the different organizations doing this amazing work and see where I can help.
