Why have you decided to serve as a Trailblazer for the JLSA?
It was an honor to be asked to help the Junior League raise funds for Clarity Child Guidance Center, an organization that I have had the privilege of partnering with on several projects. Having a daughter who is active in the Junior League has given me the opportunity to see and participate in many of the wonderful fundraising events they have sponsored. It is truly a “giving” organization and when asked, I thought this was my chance to give back to Clarity Child Guidance Center for some of the wonderful programs that they have served area school districts with.
Who and/or what inspires you to pave a path in our community?
In San Antonio there are so many great organizations that the community can reach out to in times of need, but these organizations need volunteers to continue to grow and provide additional services. Everyday I meet people who tell me about a new program or organization and how excited they are to be a part of it. Enthusiasm from others is what inspires me to volunteer more of my time, knowledge and energy to make everyday a better day for someone else.
