As a wife and mother of two young daughters, I have been blessed with love and support from my family to deal with the trials of life. Many families in Kansas City aren’t as blessed as us and I am proud to have the opportunity to help out in the tiniest way I can through the BMA. Years before I became involved in the BMA, I received the horrible news that my nephew was diagnosed with Leukemia. Shortly after this tragic news I was presented with a wonderful opportunity to help support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Without much thought I decided to run for Woman of the Year. After much love and support from our wonderful community I won Woman of the Year in 2004. I continued to be involved with the LLS and served on their board for 10 years.
After attending the BMA Dine and Dance with the Stars over the years and knowing the wonderful Anselmo Family for a very long time, I wanted to find a way to help out. I was absolutely thrilled when they offered me the opportunity to join the board and have been so honored to help out over the years. There is nothing more important to me than my family, and the BMA is a part of mine. I am so blessed to be a part of this wonderful organization, and I look forward to supporting the BMA and the several charities that they support through our extended Kansas City family!!
