I believe humans are innately kind and I believe the glass is half full. I believe every human deserves respect and love. I believe it is our responsibility to care for one another. Life is already hard enough...we shouldn’t make it any harder for each other. I fully support the LGBTQ community and I believe Black Lives Matter. I am passionate about women’s rights and equality. I spend time each week taking calls on Lifeline, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline while I also volunteer at BJC’s Evelyn’s House, providing support to patients on hospice and their families. I love animals of all kinds (except birds - they scare me) but my favorites are my 2 chocolate labs: Ace and Brody. In the future, I dream of having a farm where animals can safely live and on my wish list are goats, miniature donkeys, 2 horses, cats and dogs. Lots of cats and dogs.
