I initially became involved with The Children’s Heart Foundation in 2014 when I was asked to help with the printing materials for the newly formed California Chapter. Because my husband and I own and run a local printing, marketing and promotional products business, Safeguard, it was easy to say yes. Understanding the value and impact research can have on the patient and family from personal experience, I found myself wanting to support the foundation in a more concrete fashion. I soon became Secretary and shortly thereafter moved to my current position as Treasurer of the board. My husband and I have two wonderful and successful sons and when we are not working in our business we enjoy exploring the great outdoors through camping trips and traveling.
