What inspires you to be a Woman of Hope?: Ever since I heard about For the Silent, I knew I wanted to be involved. Being a mother of three daughters, I strongly believe in protecting the innocence of young women. In fact, its something I have become very passionate about. Several years ago, I joined a company called Younique whose entire mission is to Uplift, Empower and Validate women. These words are now a part of my soul, who I am. The more and more I became involved with Younique, the more I realized God was leading me to do more. I was introduced to For the Silent about a year ago by a dear friend and the moment I read what it was all about, I knew God was calling me to get involved. I, like I know so many others are, was in denial that things like sex trafficking are actually taking place right here in our home town and all throughout East Texas. If I can in anyway be a small part of educating our community by spreading awareness as well as contribute to helping young women gain the confidence they deserve after enduring such tragedy, I will be forever grateful.
What ways are you involved in the community?: I'm part of the PTO at my daughter's school as well as volunteer as "Homeroom Mom". Teaching Sunday school is something I have done quite a bit in the past and now like to do when needed/when I can. Having three young children makes it harder to be as involved as I would like to be and honestly wish I could do more than I do!
What is a fun fact about you? : I'm quite obsessed with realty. So much so that I know way too much about which homes are currently for sale, which ones have recently sold and if any street name comes up in conversation, I can pretty much name the neighborhood haha.....sad I know. If my TV is on, its on HGTV....I secretly wish my husband and I were Chip and Joanna and I probably say at least once a week to him that I just wish we were in business together flipping houses!
