Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
I want to give a huge shout out to the JLB for the opportunity to contribute to a need that, unfortunately, is so painfully real to many. The promise of One Place to provide loving, humane support survivors is my primary motivation. I also want to spread awareness about this progressive model for help and recovery. I’m so honored to be able to help.

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
I have the privilege of connecting students at The Altamont School to needs in the Birmingham community. Each day, I am inspired by my students’ determination, creativity, and compassion to serve the greater good. They are incredible!
