“Someone famous once said, ‘Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.’ Animals are my passion and my life. To be able to be a part of The Chester Foundation, whose mission is to provide medical care for disadvantaged pets, is an opportunity for me to not only further my own values in the betterment of animals, but to give back to the community.

My current philanthropic ventures include Project R.I.D.E. of Elk Grove (Board Treasurer) and I am an active member of the Gypsy and Friesian horse breed community.”
