DiannaWhat do you do in your volunteer role at the WCA?

I’m fortunate to be the Chair of the WCA’s Ambassador Program. Ambassadors are a dedicated (and growing!) group of 40 people who educate and engage the community about the WCA’s mission. I sign up for as many outreach events as my schedule allows!

How long have you been a volunteer?

A friend and Hope Society member invited me to the Healing Begins with Hope breakfast in 2010. After I stopped crying, I asked, “How can I help?’ I’ve been involved ever since.

What do you find most rewarding about your work at the WCA?

Witnessing the transformations that the WCA’s clients go through is incredibly powerful. As an Ambassador, I get to hear so many stories of individuals who find safety, healing and freedom through participation in the WCA’s programs. These survivors truly become the butterflies that symbolize the work the WCA accomplishes. It’s hard not to be moved and inspired.

How have you changed or grown as a person through your work here?

Working with the WCA has enriched my life in so many ways! I’m in awe of the power of hope. I cannot fathom the situations some of these survivors were in when they found the WCA. The WCA shows them vital skills and resources, but also gives them hope. And through that hope these amazing survivors find courage. I’m also far more aware of the cycle of abuse, the necessity of stopping it through awareness, and conversations about what healthy relationships really look like.
