Every day, I have the privilege of being surrounded by volunteers who are passionate about helping others by equipping and empowering them to overcome their circumstances.
Chamber members are the first ones I go to for our business needs for things like signage, electrical, flooring, painting, marketing, etc. I have also made some personal friendships from being a Chamber member that I wouldn't have otherwise made. I am grateful for both the business and personal growth I have gained by being a member.
Our non-profit stands out from other social services because we partner with any organization, whether government, private, or NGO, to help them bring their clients to a place of career and economic stability. Any organization working with a vulnerable population utilizes our services of education, coaching, emergency clothing, and clothing for the workforce. Collaboration is what will make an impact on the greatest needs in our communities, and it provides a free resource to many non-profits that they wouldn't otherwise be able to afford.
My son is the one person who inspires me the most. We adopted him from Ethiopia when he was ten years old, and he came to America not speaking English. He has faced every life challenge and change with courage and has grown into a young man who is filled with gratitude. His world perspective has helped me find more contentment in my own.
I have a twin sister who followed me to Chester County when I came here for work in 1998. Because we both live in West Chester and are connected to many of the same social circles, many people think we grew up in this area. We are fraternal, so you wouldn't be able to guess that we are twins if you saw us together!
