“I joined the Junior League because I wanted to meet successful and caring women who wanted to improve their community. My husband is born and raised in Long Beach with tons of friends, but I needed a group of friends I could call my own. This is why I joined the Junior League. I stayed because this phenomenal organization has changed my life. I have always been a philanthropic person, but because of the League I can make an immediate impact in my community and help change the lives of children, especially girls and young women. I have built life long relationships with incredibly intelligent, successful, and stunningly kind women. Junior League of Long Beach is forever written on my heart.”
