Are you from Louisville? If not, how did you end up here?
I moved to Louisville in 1998 as part of my career with Yum! Brands.

What attracted you to serve on the Board at The Healing Place?
I believe in the effectiveness of the model of The Healing Place, especially the emphasis on personal accountability and responsibility.

How do you feel The Healing Place impacts the community?
I have no doubt The Healing Place saves our community a lot of money through reduced state and local government spending on healthcare, incarceration, and welfare. The Healing Place makes a permanent impact on the lives of its clients by enabling them to become more productive citizens in our communities and to build more productive relationships with their families.

Share a personal experience from your time on The Healing Place Board:
I’ve been to a number of Community meetings with clients and have learned firsthand how many have developed a totally different mindset about what it means to live an accountable and responsible versus entitled life.
