About Me: 

I have been familar with World Pulse since it first made its online appearance. I was excited to see an organization that focused on the needs of women worldwide. I am slow to the task. I am a trained journalist, now freelancer, as well as former human services worker. I think the two areas fit neatly together. I have also worked in US and international not-for-profit organizations. I am also a Christian who believes that demonstrating advocacy for women who suffer oppression in the world is more than just a wish. I have a lot to learn about the complicated systems in which women are born into. But through the information, resources and stories provided by World Pulse, I believe that I can learn and grow in my understanding as well as discover the best way that I can be advocate.

My Passions: 
Writing, reading, womens' dignity and respect, classical music, my Lord Jesus Christ, my family
My Challenges: 
Learning about world issues concerning women and courage to write and speak truth.
My Vision for the Future: 
Relevant writing that promotes positive change for women in the world.
My Areas of Expertise: 
impact of sexual abuse on womens' self perception.
My Languages: 
English, limited French
