Why did you join KidsMatter? What motivates you to be more involved in our community and represent KidsMatter as a board member?
I was drawn to KidsMatter because of the work that it does to help build resilient kids and teens who are equipped to deal with stress in a positive manner. The organization’s focus on addressing mental health issues and other problems facing our youth – as well as celebrating our youth – is very important, and much needed, in our community.
