Favorite quote: "This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or I can use it for good. What I do today is very important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone, forever, Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss, good, not evil, Success, not failure, in order that I shall not Forget the price I paid for it!

She joined GYFC because she wanted to make an impact on our local community and felt she could be a great asset to the organization. In her first year she hit the ground running exceeding her goal.
