I first became affiliated with SADD as a Corporate Executive supporting SADD teens in our local high schools . Now I am fortunate to be a Board Member which has given me the opportunity to support teens nationwide in their efforts to make positive life choices despite the overwhelming negative pressures in our society. SADD teens are leaders amongst their peers and I am so proud to have this opportunity to encourage their leadership.

I've found that there are a lot of great organizations out there, but when it comes to SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions, founded in 1981 as Students Against Driving Drunk) there is something different. Nationwide, SADD has more than ten thousand chapters made up of teens helping teens make positive decisions. SADD is not just an organization, it's a lifestyle. In a day and age where some teens struggle to make the right choices, SADD has empowered me to live above the peer pressure and live the "No-Use " lifestyle that millions of other teens in the SADD family are living each and everyday.
