Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
I work with women all day, everyday as a Gynecologist.  Unfortunately, I hear the stories of women who have experienced domestic violence and rape too frequently.  I understand the importance of them having a safe place to go, with resources so they only have to tell their story once.  I understand the difficulty of having to relive the incident over and over, so by telling their story once and having access to resources, they may prevent this from happening to other women. Women who tell their story, obtain adequate resources, and take proper legal action are more likely to heal and thrive. 

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
I carry the torch for all of my patients and all women who have been violated, as well as  the women who continue to endure this violence.
