Quigz is an active supporter of the NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS FOUNDATION, a national organization that assists the families of firefighters injured or killed while on duty.
Having spent a large portion of her life challenged by and overcoming the difficulties associated with both a learning disability and raising herself after the loss of her mother, Quigz always keeps a positive attitude and lets nothing stop her from accomplishing her goals. She has been a motivational speaker on several occasions, specifically focusing on troubled children and at-risk youth who have lost their parents, as well as children with learning disabilities.
Quigz is currently spearheading a statewide support organization for female firefighters, addressing the issue women in this career field face on a daily basis as a minority in a male-dominated environment. She feels strongly that a woman is physically and mentally capable of doing all of the same duties as that of a man. She wants to decrease the rate of sexism in this field, which is something many people never speak about.
