I love the journey that we take together as we learn how the world is changing and how we each uniquely contribute to improving our community, whether that is local or global. As citizens of the world, compassion and communication are our cornerstones. Educational experiences transform us, all of us and I grow from each group of learners. As a life long learner, I see the challenge of exploring/learning as an exciting adventure. In my professional career, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively and lead teams in creating value for customers. I speak extensively in the area of new media and social marketing and love to entertain and educate. I have two grown children, one who is an engineer and the other who makes YouTube videos for a living. I have been a SCORE volunteer (helping small businesses) and serve on multiple organizational boards. I have been blessed with so much in my life, it is my honor and privilege to give back in any way that I can. I am grateful for everyday.
