"I am excited to be a part of the TPW leadership team because I believe in what we do and how we are able to make positive changes in the lives we touched. It's my life's journey as a community health advocate to help heal and build healthy community, and I believe that TPW is what is needed to help me achieve this goal. I look forward to what we will do together as a collective."

"The reason I wanted to join the leadership team is to bring my life experiences from the inside and outside to the team in hopes of bringing about meaningful change to the system in place. On a personal note I want more of the experience of working with a team that is building the plane as we fly."
