"Living, working, and raising my children in Westfield definitely gives me a vested interest in wanting it to be a great community. I can sit back and hope others make that happen, or I can serve my community and try to make a positive impact in any way I can. I think serving our youth is one of the most important things we can do. I was raised by a single mom, in a not so great area. If not for an after-school program at a church in the neighborhood I grew up in, I don't know if I would be where I am today.”
