FAITH AND FAMILY
I have a passion for serving the Lord and I hope that shows in all that I do. Without the Love and Support of my family nothing I do would be possible.
I believe every child is entitled to have an education, which is one reason why Daniel’s Blessing was formed. I volunteer my time as a Mentor with The Circle of Love Mentoring Program, as Art and Computer Teacher. I also believe no one should go hungry, especially children, I have put together food drives to help in our communities while also volunteering at the Foodbank.
The Opera, Symphony, Museums and Plays, anything to do with the arts I am there. I also enjoy sharing the arts with our youth. So many have never been to a museum or any other art form since Art is no longer taught in school.
