HC Siena: What’s your inspiration for helping so many people and staying so positive?
AV: My family is incredibly important to me and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their continual support and encouragement.

AV: If someone wants to get involved they should definitely attend a meeting. Everyone is extremely kind and we love when people are excited about working together.
