I am proud to serve on the Board of Covenant Community. Covenant is a 14 bed long – term residential drug and alcohol treatment center on the campus of All Saints Episcopal Church. As a board member I help with a variety of issues including strategic planning, staffing issues and fund – raising. I am honored to be a part of this program.

In 2001 I was selected as one of two instructors from the State of Georgia to teach lawyers trial skills and how to discover and communicate their client’s story to the jury. In my role as a staff member, I teach approximately 20 days a year at seminars throughout the U.S. It is one of my very favorite things I do as a lawyer.
Since 1999 I have served as Pro-Bono Counsel for the Men of Covenant Community. As long as they remain sober, and committed to their sobriety, the Men know they do not have to worry about finding a lawyer to help them make amends and to represent them on past legal issues. If they are sober, I will represent them for free.
In November 2008 I raised approximately $5,000.00 by completing a full Ironman Triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run – all in a row – to raise money for a men’s shelter on the campus of my church. I made it in just over 13 hours. The shelter is Covenant Community. My church is All Saints Episcopal. I love them both dearly. To learn more about Covenant Community, click here.
Every year at Thanksgiving I take part in preparing and feeding roughly 600 hungry people as part of the Covenant Community Feed the Hungry Thanksgiving meal. My staff gets a paid volunteer day. This year we started early – by helping the men purchase the food, preparing and serving folks a true homemade meal.
Although I’m not a member of St. Marks, I help prepare breakfast for approximately sixty men once a month as part of St. Marks ministry to the homeless. It is humbling and reminds me how many people struggle and how blessed I am.
