2022 Winner: Jennifer Myers

My name is Jennifer Myers and I’ve been a single mom for 14 of the last 15 years. I work full time in finance while doing my best to keep up with my 3 boys. My hope when I got divorced was that I could create a home and a life for us that was enough. It was important to me that I modeled not only a strong work ethic but a positive attitude and a spirit of service for my kids.
I had tears in my eyes reading the words my friend wrote when she nominated me for this and was so shocked that I was selected! This is such a kind and generous thing for Attorney Dolan to do. It’s easy as a single parent to feel like all of the work you are doing goes unnoticed. I am so appreciative of the good people I have in my orbit but mostly I am so lucky I get to be these boys’ mom.


2021 Winner: Michelle Gonzalez

My name is Michelle Gonzalez and I work full time, I am a single mother to 4 wonderful children, one who I just recently adopted. I am also a foster mommy. I have always instilled in my children the importance of school and work. I worked during the whole pandemic in the medical field, as 3 of my children did also. I have been divorced for the past 23 years from my children’s father who has TBI which caused a lot of not knowing what you are walking into when you get home from work. I have a great support system between my parents, my brothers and my children.

When I received the news that I was selected I literally cried when I saw what my daughter wrote and the generosity of Attorney Dolan to do something like this. I know my children always tell me how proud they are of me, but reading this just put so much emotion in me.  Again, I cannot thank you enough.
