Guest Book

Because of Doris, I was able to return to college after enduring a brutal divorce. As a single mother of 3 and being disabled from Multiple Sclerosis, her gift of tuition assistance allowed me to earn my BA in Behavioral Science. I will forever be grateful for her generosity.

I believe that I am the very first recipient of the Sunshine Lady Foundation scholarship. In 1999, Doris’ generosity assisted me with obtaining a Master of Social Work degree at Sir George Williams College at Aurora University in Illinois. I am a survivor of child sexual abuse and at the time in 1999 I was a single parent of my teenager daughter. We were living in extreme poverty when miraculously the wonderful Sunshine Lady, Doris and her amazing scholarship opportunity showed up In my life and opened more doors of possibilities by funding my education.

In 2000 I successfully graduated with a MSW degree and that same year I got hired at Utah Valley University (UVU). Currently I am the Director of Crisis Services at UVU. I have trained over 25,000 people in Suicide Prevention & I have provided mental health therapy to 100s of individuals, I have taught social work courses for 10 years, I continue to mentor and supervise social workers.

My daughter graduated high school and is a licensed cosmetologist and a wonderful mother to her 3 children. In 2016, I married a wonderful partner and we share a beautiful life together. Life is good. I have immense gratitude to Doris and for her giving me a hand up in life. I send my love and genuine empathy to everyone who knows and loves Doris. I think that the heavens just received more sunshine since she has graciously arrived.
