I have been with The Allstate Danny Robertson agency since 2007 and have enjoyed meeting and helping people in the insurance world. It is all about relationships with our clients! Prior to working with Allstate I was a substitute teacher for the Meridian school district and before that a stay at home Mom and was very active in the community as President of the Meridian Swim team and also involved with Youth groups.
I have a B.S. degree in Family Sciences/Child development from Brigham Young University. I also played Basketball for the University on a full ride scholarship during those 4 years.
My personal life I married my Highschool sweetheart in 1980 and I have 3 children & 7 grandchildren who are the light of my life. I love spending time with my family!
The Big Kindness Project is a dream come true thanks to the brainstorming of my co-worker Sarah Baber and my boss Danny Robertson. For years we have tried to find a way to give back to the community in the best possible way and the Big Kindness Project is it! Kindness is the key to bringing people together regardless of any disability, skin color, nationality, religion, or gender you may be. Everyone needs kindness! One by one, the goal is to help individuals be a little kinder with just one act of kindness at a time.
I chose Game Changers Boise, Idaho as my charity. As a former collegiate athlete who has a grandson with Autism that has participated in this program, this has so much to offer any child, K-12th, the opportunity to participate in sports with or without disabilities. They learn the value of teamwork that will help them throughout their life. It will also give them the ability to connect with their peers who play sports at a higher level because of the knowledge they’ve gained of the sport that they have participated in. Game Changers’ motto fits right into our Big Kindness Project dream. “Be Kind. Be Different. Be You.”
Game Changers Idaho became a 501(c)3 in September of 2018 located in Boise, Idaho. Founded by Gabriel Moreno, starting as a Flag Football Program, Game Changers has grown into offering multiple sporting opportunities for children with and without disabilities in the grades of K-12th.
We all know we can simply do a little more to make this world a better place. It seems on a day to day basis we hear more bad than what’s good in the world. We want to be an Organization where we can alter that, even just a bit. Our way of achieving that goal is by offering opportunities for children with and without disabilities to play sports together in our community. Doing this leads to bringing kids together from different backgrounds and showing the community what kids with disabilities are actually capable of doing. They can play sports to their fullest potential if they are given the chance. If they are willing to give us their best effort, they should be rewarded simply by being offered to play. There is so much more we can do in helping others and this is our way of doing it.
