About Me: 

My life is full of blessings and magic. There have been dark days and glorious on-top-of-the world days. Among my greatest blessings was being invited because of political and communications expertise to join World Pulse's Founding Board in 2002. Though no longer on the board, I had a life-changing experience of having dinner with the three Correspondents when they were in Portland last fall. Within minutes of our meeting, Neema adopted me as her grandma!

At 80 years old, I think of Jensine as one of my beloved angels -- it's thrilling to see her soar as she leads this movement of liberating women around the world.

My Passions: 
Family, equality and justice, music
My Challenges: 
not enough time to do all I want
My Vision for the Future: 
Women around the world being free to share their fullest talents
My Areas of Expertise: 
Political strategies and communications
