"The best part of what I do is the opportunity to get involved. My work has inspired me to participate in food and clothing drives, donate more than 10" of hair, and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with a group of people with assorted abilities including four very determined climbers with paraplegia," says Mara. "I am continuously learning and being inspired especially by my husband and children. We are all blessed with a superpower and have to channel it to help others."
