What do you wish more people knew about NAMI?
The terrific free resources that NAMI offers, such as support groups, presentations and education classes.
What’s something about you that would surprise others?
I am an avid traveler and have spent months traveling through the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and South America. My dream is to move to a small farm and found an animal rescue organization, where animals of all types could find their forever home.
