Hope is a choice, once you choose it, anything is possible.

- Christopher Reeves

I often say that sometimes you choose your job, and other times it chooses you. In my case, it chose me. I was 19 years old when I took over a non-profit serving individuals with disabilities in Northeast Georgia. 13 years, 25 semesters of programming, 300 staff, 400+ children, 4,680 days of fundraising, 10,000 managed volunteers and millions of dollars raised & a giant tractor-trailer load of hope later… I am thankful to still be here, learning lessons of leadership, fundraising and working motherhood.

Follow me as I walk in hope and share lessons along the way.
