Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
I am honored, humbled, and grateful for the opportunity support the access, advocacy, peace, and safety One Place provides for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. I can only imagine how difficult, isolating, and overwhelming it is must be to survive trauma and then attempt to navigate the complex web of systems and services needed to find safety, seek justice, and reclaim your life. One Place helps survivors do just that. I am hopeful that serving as a Torchbearer will allow to bring attention to One Place’s work and expand their community of support.

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
Over the years serving at the YWCA, I have met so many women and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. I am so grateful to know each one of them, and my life is better because of them. The joy, hope, strength, patience, perseverance, grace, brilliance, and bravery of these incredible people has filled my life with so much LIGHT, and they inspire me each and every day. Supporting One Place is a small way I can attempt to reflect and magnify their light.
