My heart’s desire is to serve our rural communities by helping others to live their best life possible. To help educate our communities to end stigma and to support those struggling. As a lifelong resident of Greenbrier County I have seen how the lack of education, support and resources can affect our rural communities. My goal is work within CRCH to make a positive difference in the lives of the students at WVSOM, our communities and those that live in our rural areas.
