Health care! Quality health care is an essential component for helping people thrive. As an educator and community advocate, I have seen the tremendous impact that proper health care, quality resources and transformative educational opportunities can have on improving lives. I passionately believe that supporting a child’s physical, emotional and mental health can help clear obstacles on their educational and personal journeys to success.
