Giving Back & Moving Forward
I have been involved in charitable work for most of my adult life. Most recently serving as the President of Arizona Helping Hands, a charity which grew under my leadership to become the largest provider of basic needs to Arizona’s children in foster care.

Recently, I had the honor and privilege of saying THANK YOU to a few of the army of individuals who helped accomplish amazing things for children in foster care at the organization with which I used to be involved. We came together to celebrate the good work we did together, and to raise a toast to our accomplishments.
