I first met Louisa Garrett through a mutual friend on the internet. I was taken immediately by her enthusiasm, bright smile and laugh, and intense determination to "Make Kind Loud"
Louisa is the epitome of a LIGHTbeamer because she uses her social media channels relentlessly to share her message of Kindness.
She shows up LIVE every single day spreading a message of compassion and empathy toward others. You can't help but fall in love with Louisa within 2 seconds of meeting her.
She's infectious.... and a powerful LIGHTbeamer leading the way to make this world a better place.
I'm honored to feature her for this month's LIGHTbeamers Spotlight!
