    My grandmother always told me that, ‘It’s only good if you share,’ no matter what ‘it’ was. Having been fortunate in my businesses, I am now grateful to be able to share my time and experience with organizations that have a higher purpose, and where sharing has even more meaning. The Ronald McDonald house offers help to those at a time in their lives where pain and fear cuts deep and when no family should bear that burden alone. We share our home and our kitchen but, most importantly we share our love. I’m proud to be a part of that sharing.

    The Ronald McDonald House holds a special place in my heart. Eight years ago, my daughter had a horse accident. We spent several days at Banner Health Diamond Children’s Medical Center. There, I learned of the House and its wonderful services. It brings me great joy to give back to the House which does so much for kids and families in their times of greatest needs.

    I grew up hearing my dad talk about the Ronald McDonald House as a place of family, love, and hope. A place of kindness, and of community. After volunteering at RMHC during my high school years and serving the House as a young professional in the Red Shoe Society more recently, I have come to fully understand why he held the Ronald McDonald House in such high regard. Serving on the Board of Directors here doesn’t feel like service—it feels like family.

    I was thrilled when I was asked to serve on the RMHC Board of Directors. I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ, and this community is my home. In allowing me this opportunity, the Ronald McDonald House has given me the greatest gift…a way to serve my community, to support families in their time of need. I am so grateful to have the chance to participate in this amazing organization.
