KRISTY

Hello Arizona!

My name is Kristy Grant. I’m new transplanted from New Mexico. My experience ranges from my home town community. I enjoyed volunteering for soup kitchens, working at mental health facilities, creating multiple businesses, mentoring youth, & sponsoring a multitude sporting events. I enjoyed sponsoring pop warner teams, high school teams, all female contact football team and D1 universities.

My hobbies include flipping homes, community servant leader, & extreme sports! My greatest accomplishment is being a nana to the smartest 3 years old little girl ever. I’m excited to be part of Arizona, I can’t wait to make an impact on my new community. 

KYNDELL

Hey everyone! My name is Kyndell and I am a born Arizonian. I am half black and half Native American and grew up on the Navajo Reservation. I grew up with a passion for sports and participated in: cross country, basketball, and track all throughout high school but basketball is what brought me out to Phoenix as a collegiate basketball player. After a couple of seasons I ended up with an injury that ultimately inspired me to fully submerge myself in school where I got my Bachelor of Science and my passion for sports and fitness lead to me becoming a Personal Trainer. Championing others is what continues to inspire me to be the best I can be for them. 

JESSICA

Hello, my name is Jessica. I consider myself a native to Phoenix, Arizona as I immigrated from Mexico when I was only four years old. I was afforded the privilege of becoming a resident of The United States when I was eighteen years old and then a citizen five years later. Growing up undocumented instilled a high sense of community within myself. I believe this is where my passion for helping others and bettering my community derives from. 

I dedicate a large portion of my time in serving my community. Whether it is organizing toy drives or volunteering to help asylum seekers, I am always eagered to contribute in any way possible. 

For the last nine years, my educational and career path in law enforcement have led me to not only serve but also to protect my community. 

I’ve had the honor to be a part of Fulfillment in Training (F.I.T) for the past five years and I’ve served on the management team for the last two years. Through F.I.T, i’ve participated in community outreach and helped the initiative of bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community through fitness. 

Aside from what I actively do, I am a caring, compassionate and empathetic person. I am a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend. I live my life through the motto, be the change you want to see. The values that were instilled in me and challenges I’ve overcame have made me the strong woman I am today. I hope to be able to inspire all women to live authentically and as the best version of themselves. 

LESLIE

Hello everyone , My name is Leslie Tademy and I was born and raised in Phoenix , AZ. My first love that I had was playing basketball . That love allowed me to work extremely hard to perfect my craft which resulted in me earning a basketball scholarship.
