“I am inspired by the women who come out of the WRC and succeed! I am inspired by the passion of the other board members. And I am inspired to become a better person and help those in less fortunate situations with less resources to overcome overwhelming situations they could not otherwise do on their own.”

“I was inspired to join the board because of a desire to help women who are or have been a victim of domestic violence. Unfortunately, I have seen first-hand how both mental and physical abuse can have a long term negative effect on women. This can cause her to doubt her worth, intelligence and ability to contribute to her family and community. By being a member of the WRC board, I hope to help these women regain their self-confidence.”
