My parents exemplified and instilled in my siblings & I compassion, kindness, love, and the honor in giving to others through time, talent or treasure. Growing up my mother was Chief Executive Officer of a community nonprofit who serviced the underprivileged and poverty-stricken communities in our county. Much of my childhood was built around learning to give back and watching my mother lead impactful programs to better the lives of others. It continued to drive my desire to continue my passion of helping others throughout my life.

In 2021, my husband & I relocated fulltime to San Diego. The purpose for this next chapter was to focus our energy in promoting the welfare of others and the journey began.

We researched Walden Family Services & their impressive 45 years of dedication to Foster children.  Their progress was evident in the difference they were making in children’s lives into adulthood through their Foster care services.  We have personally had the pleasure of meeting a few recipients of  Walden’s services and have witnessed the transformation of the children, teens, and adults they have been able to help with the generosity of their donors, who have been so kind to commit to changing the trajectory of those in need one person at a time.  They are committed to keeping their overhead low, for every dollar donated .88 cents goes to the child. I hope you will consider Walden Family Services in whatever way you can to help transform these children and give them hope for a future.
