What piece of your work at NAMI are you most proud of
I am most proud of the connections I have made and the relationships I have built with NAMI volunteers nationwide. Together, we build strong, robust state organizations and local affiliates that can provide support, education and advocacy to the people who need NAMI the most.
Who inspires you?
Every day I am inspired by my daughters, who have taught me courage and patience, especially during times of adversity and transition.
