What motivates you, andwhat is a quote that inspires you to do the work you do?
I am motivated to be a servant leader; to be a voice for those that are unable to do so. My favorite quote is from Neil Peart (drummer for RUSH), “A spirit with a vision is a dream with a mission.”
What has been your most meaningful experience with PBRC?
When I first joined PBRC, I spent the morning with our CPP team in court, listening to stories of people faced with significant debt. A mother of 3 young children spoke with our paralegal and staff attorney. They were able to help her save over $700. The immediate relief of stress to her family that our team provided was overwhelming to witness. She was quite thankful. The impact that a few minutes of time truly resonated with me.

Consider donating to PBRC as the needs of our community continues to grow. More than 80% of people in poverty cannot afford a lawyer. Your support allows us provide critical legal services across our state. We need your help.
