  • She is the founder of Sports for All Kids (25 years ago), which enabled hundreds of children in our community to have the opportunity to learn about teamwork and a healthy lifestyle. Continuing down this path, she is the driving force behind the Danville Backpack program, ensuring children with food insecurity have food on the weekends and over breaks. She was integral to the success of Family Promise of Hendricks County in our work to end and prevent homelessness.

She has demonstrated exceptional leadership and a keen ability to identify opportunities for positive change. She fearlessly challenges established norms and has been a catalyst for transformation, bringing about improvements that will leave a lasting legacy in Hendricks County. She has moved our community forward. What sets her apart is not only her impressive list of community involvements but the depth of her commitment. She is more than a leader; she is a dedicated advocate for the success of our community. Her ability to inspire, guide and create opportunities has played a pivotal role in the achievements of numerous individuals, myself included, and our entire community.
