Why is Windwood special to you? 

After returning to Charleston in 2012, I started volunteering with Windwood – reading books to the boys or serving them Thanksgiving dinner alongside my cousins. For the 25th anniversary, I pledged to donate monthly and continue this practice today in memory of my mother, Susan Tamsberg Wise. As a physician, I recognize how Windwood’s services for children and their families positively impact long-term mental and physical health.
