Lindsay

Grady was a stable and centered resource during a hard and transitional time. Her knowledge and encouragement helped to guide me through the unknowns of parenting. I value her insights and perspective as I know she prioritizes caring for others. She is uniquely gifted in this space and I view her as a true blessing in our lives.
