Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
When Jenifer Kimbrough, Leigh Davis, Jenna Bedsole, Jenny McCain and Lindsey Tanner ask - the answer is yes.  These women are my friends, my mentors and are all strong leaders in our community.  It is my honor to follow in their footsteps and stand on their shoulders for this important initiative.  It is what the Junior League of Birmingham and the One Place Metro Alabama Family Justice Center is about: Women supporting each other and leaders working together to make our community a better place to live for all citizens.

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
There is a verse in the Bible that says “to whom much is given, much will be required,” and I believe it is incumbent on each of us who have been blessed with opportunities, means and influence to use it to improve the lives of others.  My mom and dad raised me to see service of others as a privilege.
