Tis the Season to spread some Christmas cheer...through service & love!
I participate in a local Non Profit called The GIGG. They organized the "12 Days of Christmas" Service Project which offers an opportunity for all of us to reflect on what the true meaning of Christmas is. My family is participating in these upcoming events and we’d love to have you join us!

Growing up in Napa I learned the value of community. I strive to serve the neighborhoods that I grew up in and the people who desire to make Napa their home. I help people connect to the community of Napa with a focus on continuing to build the unique community of Napa and my belief that home is where your story begins.
