Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
There are so many motivated and hard-working individuals, groups, and organizations that work tirelessly to solve challenges in our Birmingham community. Too often, however, I find that efforts are fragmented and lacking the synergy of the collective talent to make transformative change. I am inspired by the vision of One Place to bring together separate, but key support services in a collaborative effort to optimize the access to resources for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault
What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
It is a privilege to work in healthcare and especially at a mission-focused system like UAB Medicine where we have the opportunity to make a difference for all citizens of our community and state. Disease does not discriminate and therefore, we see the faces of our entire Birmingham and Alabama community on a daily basis. In serving a diverse community, I am reminded of the challenges that people face well beyond a medical condition. Our patients and their families inspire me to serve beyond the walls of my work and my family and social circles so that we can build a greater connectedness in our community that can withstand and solve the challenges, like domestic violence and sexual assault, that so many face. I want my children to grow up and live in an even stronger Birmingham and we all have to own a part of making our home a better place for everyone.
