Founder of The Family Legacy Foundation
"I am very fortunate to have had a fun and lucrative career at Spectrum Properties, a development company based in Charlotte, NC. My partners and I have been developing office buildings, apartments, condominiums, retail and student housing for 30 years and have been very active in community charities the entire time. Through FLF I wanted to expand that giving internationally by helping the neediest. I am very excited about working on a holistic transformation of the village of La Ladrillera, Guatemala while involving families who wish to leave a dynamic legacy of helping others.”

I feel honored to be able to use my gift of languages to communicate the needs of the people of my country. I am able to serve by fulfilling needs for transportation, communication and logistics. It is so rewarding to watch how FLF’s programs enrich the lives of families of La Ladrillera."

"I believe that God blessed me with the gift of languages and a heart for the poor and less fortunate. Being a part of FLF gives me the opportunity to live life at the intersection of my gifts and my passion. My position with the foundation includes communicating with our friends and fellow team members in La Ladrillera and sharing their hopes, needs, joys and concerns. I help implement new programs and ensure the sustainability of current programs. Everyday brings new challenges and with those challenges comes exciting opportunities to make a difference I'm so grateful to be a part of this caring foundation."
