“I believe that inclusion makes us more human and makes our communities more vibrant.  With our twins, who were born premature, our family is blessed with kids availed of All Belong services, and who have spent their early years in Christian and Catholic schools.  My kids have taught me about inclusion through their social interactions with friends with learning and developmental differences.  It is these interactions that exposed a missing puzzle piece in my work on other boards where diversity and equity is a prime focus.  I am privileged to be part of a mission-driven organization that advocates for inclusion, and hope that my perspectives and experiences in publishing and business will help All Belong flourish in the years ahead.”
