In 1996, she founded the Always Dream Foundation whose mission is to ensure children from low-income families have access to high-quality books in the home environment and extensive family engagement support.

Toni Julian As the founder of Toni’s Kitchen, Toni Julian creates healthy, high-protein meals that are sold in specialty food markets.
