AZ Coalition Against Domestic Violence Gala

The Gala last night was a wonderful event, and I completely enjoyed learning more about the amazing and powerful work that the Coalition does, as well as hearing other domestic violence survivor stories.

Here's a link to a video of my presentation at the Gala.

I've received some awesome media coverage of my story, and appeared on the Channel 12 News after the Gala. Here's the link to last night's 10 o'clock news....


I had another interview air on Channel 15 yesterday morning as well, and will be posting that clip soon.

Expect to see additional media clips in the next couple of days.

Many kudos goes out to the Gala organizers for a great evening!!!

  3. Very proud of you, my sister! Give Betsy a big hug from me. You both rock!!

  4. Look at you! What a strong woman and an inspiration to many. I greatly admire what you're doing because as you know I went through my own dv nightmare and feel its so important to share our stories. Thank you for getting the message out there that women don't have to be abused, they can break free.

    Take good care,

  5. Amazing, just amazing. You are an extraordinary woman.

    Kudos to you for standing up for what is right, true and real and not allowing evil to bring you down. You have many, many friends in this town supporting you.
