Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
As an active member of the JLB, I had the opportunity to volunteer with the Children in Crisis placement at the YWCA Central Alabama.  Through this placement, I was able to work directly with children who have witnessed domestic violence.  With my fellow JLB volunteers, I helped lead a class using a curriculum that teaches these children about choices and consequences, good and bad secrets, self-esteem, and safety planning.  Working with Children in Crisis put names, faces, and stories with the words “domestic violence.” I’ve been fortunate to continue working with the YW to support these children and their families, and am excited to see the work that's going on at One Place in the fight against domestic violence and sexual assault.  I was deeply honored when Ragan Cain passed her torch to me for this year's Torchbearer campaign.  What an incredible opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the families served and supported by One Place on a daily basis!

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
Each morning before school, we tell our twin 8-year-old boys to “be brave, be kind, be a great listener, be a good friend.”  Serving as a Torchbearer will help our family live out this daily bit of encouragement.  It is such a privilege to be able to join with the other members of my Torchbearer class as we work to make Birmingham a bit brighter each day, for all our children.   As the YW saying goes, we are strong alone, fearless together!
