Business Community Representative

Cherokee County State Court


How did you come to be involved with CFVC? 

I was asked by another board member and after I looked in to it, I wanted to help.

What has made you remain committed to CFVC since then?

Victims need advocates.

Tell us about yourself – what should our clients and supporters know about you? 

I’m passionate about helping others.

Why do you think people should get involved with CFVC?

Family violence is very real.  It does not discriminate.  The issue could be closer to home than you may know; this is why people should get involved.  A voice for victims.

What is the biggest challenge you think CFVC faces and how could CFVC supporters help with that issue?

Not sure about issues, but volunteering to help — teaching the signs of domestic violence to schools and police officers, offering resources when available and being sure those resources are followed up on. All these things take volunteers, so getting involved just takes time.

What do you most look forward to in terms of CFVC’s future? 

Continuing support for victims of domestic violence.

Is there anything else you want to add?

Hands are not for hitting.
