I have been actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America for nearly 15 years.  I currently hold the position of Adult Leader in Troop 32, Love Park IL. 


I work to empower those who's voice can not be heard and be the voice for those who have no voice.  I provide advocacy and support to a highly marginalized and disenfranchised population.  I serve the women of Wichita who are forgotten and under represented. 


Provide Advocacy and support to a highly marginalized population.
