Thanks for checking out my blog! I love writing and I love conversation. It is my hope that you will not only read my posts but that you will also respond and share your thoughts and experiences with me as well – even if you don’t agree!
My life experience…..
I spent 20 years in the not-for-profit world; first as a volunteer and then as an outreach worker for street people. As the years went on I also held other positions in administration, H.R., policy, communications, community relations, marketing, fundraising, media relations, volunteerism, events and more. I am grateful, beyond words, for having had these opportunities. Now I stand at a crossroad eagerly dreaming up and anticipating my new adventure.
As a child…..
As far back as I can remember I’ve wanted to make a difference in this world. I couldn’t wait to be a grown up because I thought, then, finally, I will always know what I should be doing. I think I was 8 or 9 years old when I sat in and really listened to a grownup conversation. I was shaken to the foundation with the revelation that they too struggled with knowing what to do. I guess that’s why we need each other to make it in this world.
What I believe…..
I believe in collaboration. I believe in building community. I believe in tearing down the walls that separate us. I believe in conquering fear through love and understanding and building tolerance. I believe we all have a mission and we are equipped with the exact right talents, education, experience and passion to accomplish it. I believe that every person/skill you need is right there sitting around the table with you and together you can change the world. I believe we should enjoy what we are doing and have fun. (A good sense of humour can get you through the most difficult of times). I believe we owe it to the world to courageously step out and do our part.
