Why she is a Board Member: I belong to the YWCA board because I am committed to the mission: “eliminating racism and empowering women.” Although many people profess these values, not many actually embody them. The YWCA not only professes and embodies them, but impacts the community through programs that benefit women and children. It is an honor to sit on board that actively works toward positive individual and community change.
