Back to School!

June 11, 2016
I had the pleasure of meeting Cody “Beeks” Beekman four years ago. We met while Cody was at Craig Hospital recovering from a life changing car accident. Cody and I have grown close over the last few years and I’ve watched firsthand his physical and emotional struggles and even bore witness to a very scary brush with death. This spring, Beeks took a very big step as he started his college car…

Special Honor for a Special DAWG

April 5, 2016
Many of you aren’t aware that I was born in England and immigrated to North America at a young age. As a youngster I was not a citizen of the United States, but I always felt like an “American.” Once I reached legal age it was very important to me to take the steps to become a citizen and in the years since so have my mother, father and brother. To our family, becoming Americans wasn’t a birthr…
