Region Assignment: North County
Volunteer Since: October 2017
Why I Joined TIP: As a teenager (16 yrs old), I lost 8 family members in 5 years. I was hurt & numb. I had no one family or friend who knew how to talk to me. If they spoke to me about the loss. Conversations were always about my physical well-being but nothing my emotional intelligence or my heart. I had no one to tell me what to do the next day. I had no resources to help me cope. I never want anyone to feel that emptiness again. TIP gives support and resources to others even when they do not think it is necessary.
Activities Outside TIP: ROCK Church SD Chaplain. Fitness Guru, and DoD Workplace Recruiter.
