She originally came to WellMama because of her interest in making sure that all new moms and families get the support they need to more fully embrace the joys and challenges of parenthood. Serving on the board has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for her, and she’s been so impressed with the impact of this small organization in our community- through support groups, educational activities, and events.
