Chief Operating Officer Powerful Women International Connections
I envision a world that works for everyone, where all people have comfortable and beautiful shelter, plenty to eat, have access to quality education and technology, are living inspiring lives, and are fully self expressed either through music, writing, dance, art, and/or the communication of their choice. There are beautiful parks and the focus is on connecting and helping one another to live life to the fullest. There is a deep respect for all living beings and we co-exist harmoniously. Difficulties and challenges may still exist but we are equipped to go through them with support. Mental and physical health are a priority and diversity is accepted and welcomed. Advances in mental and physical health are shared and all people benefit.
1) My current project is NOWW TV and NOWW News. NOWW stands for Network Of What's Working. The premise is that whatever you focus on, your life becomes that so let's focus on what's working in the world and expand on it everywhere. The programs will be on topics such as eliminating poverty, homelessness, and hunger, reducing the rate of recidivism and crime, creating access to quality education and parks, mental and physical health without drugs, and much more.
2) I am President of the Board of Directors for the American Organ Transplant Association (AOTA) which helps transplant patients (and their caregiver) in need with free bus transportation through Greyhound to their transplant center for their evaluation, transplant, and aftercare. I have been involved with AOTA since 1999. We help save lives.
Business Leader, Civic & Community Leader, Organizational Leader, Thought Leader
