"I strongly believe in the adage that it takes a whole village to raise a child, and I've sought creative ways to build communities through my work that heal and support both children and adults in need of help. I continue to explore additional concepts and alternative programs to serve these needs in the community. I maintain tremendous energy and enthusiasm for this work, and I eagerly look forward to the challenges I encounter every day."
