A supportive family is the reason I have had so much success in my life.  My parents are my mentors and best friends and one of my goals is to share my message of the importance of family and healthy environments for kids to develop.  Family is the center of my life and includes all the amazing relatives, friends and teammates who bring joy into my life.

All throughout my schooling and sports my parents would challenge me, hold me accountable and support me.  As our world gets bigger on the global level our families need to get stronger on the micro and familial level so that we all have a foundation of relationships and togetherness.
