Passionate about possibilities and facilitating lasting change, with a boundless interest and curiosity, I am deeply committed to service. I revel in uncovering hidden opportunities and excel in the exploration, development and implementing a social mission. As a business development professional, I strive to help others achieve their vision - of finding a new cure, creating a foundation for self-sufficiency, encouraging personal development and empowering others achievement. This last year has presented many obstacles, financially, medically, and productively, after 30 year career in human services, I found myself unemployed yet driven to contribute - to be active and supportive. I have learned to desire/live with less, to evaluate need vs want, to focus on what is truly important and to find my new path. With humility and courage, I seek opportunities to contribute, to refine my skills, to volunteer, and to dream my own dreams again. With gratitude and blessings, I am thankful for my family, friends and colleagues support, and try to focus on the future. I recognize and respect the daily and horrific suffering and challenges that so many women face globally - and hope one day to be able to return to my childhood dream of serving in another country. For now, I feel connected through this new vehicle and excited to join this community.
