I find joy and meaning in using the empathy I have always had to help others. I believe in our mission in delivering compassion. We don't know what people were born in to and the shaping that took place for them as a child. We are not here to judge, but to help make the world a little better with kindness.
My education in legal studies and criminal justice and my passion for prison reform led me to HFP in 2021. I am extremely passionate about our mission, and I look forward to continuing our work by ensuring that incarcerated people and their families know that they matter regardless of their circumstances.
