Kenzie is my hero because she's been through a lot these past few months. Seeing her at a recent conference, let alone seeing her speak which brought me to tears and then seeing her all weekend after such a battle with her health. She amazes me and she also finished her degree that she worked her tush off for. I'm so darn proud of her! — Kristin
