Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
One Place Metro Alabama Family Justice Center is, to quote Allison Dearing, “a game changer” for Birmingham. As a member of the Junior League of Birmingham who realizes and appreciates that our organization makes huge impacts on issues we believe need to be addressed, a center focused on domestic violence is an obvious choice for our centennial gift. I have witnessed the good that comes when area nonprofits band together with a shared vision, mission and goal. This need is real and it is an honor to serve as a Torchbearer.

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
As a Birmingham native, I have seen drastic changes in our city and recognize how much it has to offer—health care, arts, music, food, and parks and recreation to name a few. Birmingham’s younger generation, my own children included, is deciding whether or not they want to plant their roots here.  My children have expressed an interest in returning to Birmingham after college graduation, and they inspire me to make our city a better place. I hope to continue to be a part of the positive changes that will make Birmingham natives proud and encourage more youth to make it their forever home.
