Why have you decided to serve as a Torchbearer for the JLB?
I have personally witnessed the wonderful work done throughout the city and state by the Junior League of Birmingham.  It is an inspiration and I am honored to serve for such a worthy cause that is committed to empowering women, which is a true personal passion of mine.  It says a great deal about a community when leaders step in to donate their time and resources for such a vital mission.  

What/who inspires you to be a Light in our community?
Unfortunately, I have witnessed many varying instances of women dealing with domestic violence in the clinical setting.  Organizations like One Place serve such a huge and vital role.  It is my duty as first a woman, then a physician, a mother, a sister, an aunt and lover of mankind to do what I can to enrich the lives of others and contribute in whatever way that I am able.  The Junior League has provided an amazing platform wherein I can play a role in this mission, and I thank you.
