Why Positive Focus: I chose PF-I think PF chose me! Something about it just called me! I had stumbled upon it on Meet Up and attended one Tuesday Teachings call and it was unlike anything I had ever done! It just felt right! An email came out asking for volunteers to serve on the board and I mentioned in my bio-I'm drawn towards leadership and I knew I not only wanted to participate in PF I wanted to be a part of what drives it! I joined as the board Secretary and have grown immensely. There aren't enough words to truly capture the incredible life changing impact that PF has had on my life. Being a part of PF taught me compassion, hope and how to find my voice.
