I believe in CHIPS’s vision and mission because it is in alignment with my vision and mission. My goal is to help empower the community with practical tools that approach people’s challenges from a holistic lens. And the more I learn about CHIP’s work, the more I know they provide Holistic wellness for the family and community. Children are the future, and in our times, we must provide our children with a healthy foundation, especially those in need. CHIP is laying the foundation to help build a brighter future, and I would be more than honored to be a part of the fantastic work they are doing in the Roanoke Valley.
