“I was so excited to get the vaccine as it made me feel like I was being part of a solution to a very large problem, one that I did not want to make larger. It opened up some of the doors that had been closed to me the past year, I was able to get outside more, ski, hike, bike, snowboard, surf, visit the coast, and start to resume my business as a commercial photographer. The best feeling though was knowing that I was not going to help spread COVID-19 to my family, friends, and clients. Sitting here today I wanted to thank everyone for doing their part, by getting the vaccine themselves, and by helping others to get it as well. We live in an amazing state with a diverse residency and I am so excited that we have a chance to help it continue and flourish.”
