“I am a cisgender white woman, Christian, Southerner, a facilitator, a learner of life, a sister, a loved one, a warrior, ally and friend. I am the granddaughter of a strong immigrant who made her way to America and helped change the trajectory of military payments to widows. And I am the daughter of parents who fought for me to make my own way, despite gender inequity. I want things to be better for the next generation. And I believe LoveWins. I #LiveInclusively by seeking to transform the human condition.”
