Via means the world to Kitty, and she wouldn’t be able to do the things she loves or try new things without it. “One thing I know for sure is that Via saved my life,” says Kitty. “Without Via, I would not have been able to get where I need to go for medical appointments and to stay connected in the community I love.” Kitty, a former elementary school teacher originally from Mobile, Alabama, has been volunteering weekly for the past three years as an English Second Language tutor for two young immigrant women in Boulder. According to Kitty, “the joy of teaching never leaves you!” She gives back to the community, takes piano lessons, and is not afraid to live life to the fullest – all with the help of Via taking her to where her heart leads her.
