My husband, Ronnie and out two Boston Terriers (Roxy and Karma) are always game for dressing up for Donate Life. It is part of my service to the VA however it is a personal passion that I will remain active even after retiring from nursing.

My Story

I became involved in the Donate Life cause in 2014 while working in quality at a local hospital. I was running a Dirty Girl race and a coworker asked if I would like to do an DL Outreach event. I was hooked. When I transferred to the VA I was assigned the Tissue and Organ DOnation Committee and one of my duties is Organ DOnation Outreach. I have seen and heard many very moving stories Donor Hero’s families as well as transplant recipients. It is not work when I do these events, it is my passion. After retiring in 2025 I plan to volunteer with TOSA, San Antonio Eye Bank and South Texas Blood and Tissue to continue spreading the Donate Life Message.
