I was first introduced to Lifesavers through a good friend and brother, Xavier, and saw the life changing impact it had on him. In November of 2014, I was invited to participate in a Warrior Journey. During this program, I was showered with care, love and support by the staff and wild mustangs of Lifesavers-and it changed how I viewed my place in the world!

My personal belief is that we all have a moral, ethical and legal obligation to care for our returning veterans. If the Congress and the Senate can’t provide those who gave so much with the care and treatment they need, then it comes down to us, the citizens, to ensure that this courageous group gets all the support they deserve. Lifesavers’ Wild Horse Warriors program does just that for our veterans affected by PTSD and other trauma related injuries.

I’m honored to be part of the team and am looking forward to serving Lifesavers using my skills and background in marketing and sales with Kaiser Permanente.
