OC LEADER BOARD, OCT. 5: “We need to fight mental illness like we fight cancer, heart disease and poor prenatal care. We want to get mental illness out of the shadows.” 

2020 HOBBY: “In an attempt to ‘spice up’ my physical activity during the pandemic, I took up boxing as an excellent exercise that involves both mind and body, as well as spirit.   It’s addicting once you get into it and learn the skills and techniques.”
