Stuff About Me:

In December of 1996, we lost our beautiful cousin Tiffany to domestic violence. Tiffany was a vibrant woman who did not celebrate her 20th birthday or attend her college graduation. Tiffany shared her experiences and fears about stalking, torture and violence with her campus, courts, immediate family and law enforcement. After attending Escalation training recently, I cried again for Tiffany. Now I picture Tiffany smiling that new trainings are available to help others  try to improve their outcomes and lives. 

Since joining this diverse, dynamic board, I have discovered my true voice and new ways to honor Tiffany’s memory. Please reach out to Safe Homes of Orange County for advocacy, community collaborations, education for adults and youth, non-residential and residential programs as well as services.  Help others learn resources or tools to help them navigate our fragile world.

I’d love to thank you for your support in person.

Join us as we celebrate Safe Homes of Orange County’s 30th anniversary at Celebration of Hope on 10/21 at Anthony’s Pier 9. Let’s take new steps together to help others find their voice and end the cycle of domestic violence.
