What prompted you to join Southside Wellness Coalition?
The Southside Wellness Coalition provides me a direct instrument to effect change for the better in the lives of some of our most disenfranchised community members – those battling the issues of substance misuse.
What do you consider to be one of Southside’s biggest challenges?
We are such a geographically large area with a low population density. As a result it is challenging to draw people together to work for positive change.
What do you consider to be one of Southside’s biggest strengths?
One of Southside’s biggest strengths is a wonderful and rich tradition of taking care of our own. Communities here have long been pillars for their members.
What work or activity takes up most of your time?
I left the full-time workforce in 2017 to return to college in pursuit of a degree in Substance Misuse Counseling.
What is a fun fact about you that not many people know?
I love all things culinary!
