2023 President’s Bronze Volunteer Service Award
What I do to put energy into my life:
I have learned that the best way to center myself is to be one with nature. I hike, go to the ocean, and enjoy the natural beauty which surrounds us. When I am unable to do this, I pick up my Bible and randomly read a “book.”
Why I became a Chaplain:
My heart. I am full of love and compassion for my fellow human beings. I know loss. I know the pain because of the loss, and I wish to help those who are suffering by just being there to listen and to comfort.
