"It was an absolute honor to run for Achieving My Purpose. The response from the track and field community was SO positive. As a runner, I’ve been in plenty of situations where I just wasn’t motivated enough to push myself all the way to the very edge and dig down deep because it was too painful, and the inspiration wasn’t there. Thank you for the opportunity to race for the young women of Achieving My Purpose – it was truly an honor."
"AMP is a phenomenal organization that I am proud to be a part of. Upon moving to Phoenix and not knowing many people, I got connected to Linda Groomes and AMP. Little did I know at the time, this organization would connect me with family and meaningful support to carry me through various changes in my life."
“Upon reflection, I can attest that AMP afforded me opportunities to further my career ambition and build a deeper connection to my purpose. For example, the 2018 trip to the Congressional Black Cau8cus Annual Legislative Conference was a game-changer. The conference confirmed for me that not only was I qualified and fit to lead, but there is a community of people who are just as passionate and committed as me.”
“Dr. Linda Groomes played a big role in my life over the last five years. We met when I was unsatisfied with corporate healthcare and wanted to make a bigger impact in my community. I decided to make an impact on the maternal morbidity and mortality outcomes that affect black women.”
