Benjamin Franklin. He seems like he was a very interesting individual, particularly for his time.
My role model is:
One thing people would be surprised to learn about me:
I am an open book, so I doubt there is really anything that people would be surprised to know about me.
I love The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families because:
I know that we make a very real and positive difference in the lives of many children and families each and every day. It is amazing to be a part of something so transforming and uplifting. Even the difficult days are made bearable by knowing that if we were not here for these families, greater tragedy and long-term consequences would occur without our intervention. In some instances, I even feel that our intervention, while sad having come from such unfortunate circumstances, has changed lives in ways that are even better than they were before the tragedy. It’s a privilege to get to be a part of that.

I am very proud of the staff that I work with and feel blessed to have such caring and passionate individuals who work alongside me.
