My “Why”:

I want to help more families get the help they need.

My life’s passion is advocating for those who need our help the most, to support their families through the process, and to build trauma-informed communities that can respond well to members of our society who are struggling. After losing my daughter Maddie to suicide in 2022, my advocacy became laser focused on children and young adults struggling with behavioral health. Our family has utilized Achievement Center’s services over the years, and it is a privilege to give back to the organization that has done so much to support our family both in memory of Maddie and in honor of all those kids who continue to work achieve their potential.
