"In 2016 I received The Presidential Volunteer of the Year Award I was extremely honored to receive such an Award." As the Shades of Blue Project Volunteer Coordinator for the past 3 years I am dedicated to bringing the best individuals to help with our events. Women and Men Come and Volunteer for our events they also like to Involve their kids as a way of teaching them to give back to the community. I myself was a volunteer before I became the coordinator so I know what is most important when selecting volunteers making sure that they understand that we love our community and the clients that we help and that same attitude must be displayed at all of our events. We have been blessed to have volunteers that see our vision and are happy to be apart of the organization

"Taking on the role of Executive Assistant was without a doubt the best decision I could have made. Although I am not a mother yet " Working within the Shades of Blue Project since 2015 I have been able to see first hand the growth that the project has experienced while working to improve the lack of awareness of post partum depression. The Founder is very passionate about what she puts together and as her assistant I stride to ensure that all the organizations needs are meet daily and within a timely manner. Success can truly only come based on the people you have standing behind you making things happen. Our team is dedicated to the making sure the community receives the resources that we have to offer and awareness of what is going on within their own communities. It is the principle upon which the project founded upon.
