Who’s In Your Family?

Our little family consists of me, my husband and our daughter, Ashiya.

What do you want people to know about your family?

My husband and I have lived in Kansas since 2004. Our daughter was born in 2014 and we have been with  the CHARGE Foundation since then.

My husband is a research scientist, and I am a university professor.

Why do you Volunteer with the Foundation?

We have benefitted greatly from knowing members of the foundation and receiving expert advice from other families. I think it is extremely valuable that such connections be maintained and provided to all new families, and I would like to pay it forward.

What activities do you like to do?

As a family we love to travel and explore new things. One of our travel goals is to visit all 50 states in the United States. So far, my husband and I have visited 33 states and Ashiya has visited 25 states.

Ashiya loves princesses, ballerinas, Legos and her iPad.
