“When asked why I took on the Executive Director role, my response draws from deep inside. I was raised by a mother who was an activist and a father with an entrepreneurial mindset. I was taught to help and to roll up my sleeves when there was work to be done. My career volunteerism has a thread of girl and professional women empowerment spanning decades. To build a community that cares for each other and will help heal when tragedy occurs calls to me. I am a visionary and a believer in holding space for what is possible. Each day I am pulled into the future by the Sacred Cycle vision. I believe Sacred Cycle clients, and survivor girls/women we have not yet met, are our girls. Together we will find them and heal them.”
