Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
It is a privilege for me to accept the torch and be part of this effort to support One Place.  It’s so important to me to support people who are dealing with very difficult issues like domestic violence and sexual assault and One Place provides a wholistic approach to fighting these issues.

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
I have been inspired and uplifted by so many people in my life and I feel it’s my duty to give back and be a light to others in our community.  I focus daily on my responsibility and privilege to be a light in our community and supporting One Place is another opportunity for me to make an impact.
