“When I had a mentor, that was the best thing ever.
I had her pick me up, we’d go to lunch and I had someone who was unbiased, who just listened and was compassionate.
That’s all I needed, even if it was for five minutes.”

I love my mentor! She is such a sweet kind, genuine person. She is a really good listener and I like that I can have someone to talk to and basically vent. She's really my only friend honestly. Words really can't describe how grateful I am that she became my mentor. I thank you guys for setting her up with me. I like that I can get out and have me time without my kids and be able to hangout with such an awesome person!!
"She opened her heart, mind, soul and even her family to me."
