When I was young, my mom had me crocheting. It has always been a passion of mine. I love what I do in every aspect. It shows in my dedication and in the work I do. My love for the military and their families is first and foremost with me. Being that I come from a military family, I know that value of family and country. That is why I give back to our family of Veterans and their families. I have donated blankets to many organizations. Being able, as a breast cancer survivor, to give back to those that give so much of themselves to everyone else, is someone I strive to be. That is why I think it is important to give back and pay it forward.
