"From the very moment it all started, when two pastors, a drag queen, and a librarian joined forces.., I have had a strong desire within to carry on the legacy we started that day and never look back or allow anything to stop it!  For this is my passion!"

"Making Ashtabula Pride a reality is a goal of mine that I hold onto and value.  I want to be a crucial part in the continual building of the foundation that was set before me, by those who began to bridge the gap and celebrate our community for generations to come."
