After several years of professional volunteering for a non-profit my people skills, fundraising and educational abilities were developed.  Working side by side with others from around the world honed my people skills and working in war torn countries gave me wisdom, patience and a larger view of why different groups struggle with unity for the greater good.

Raising four children to adulthood developed my skills as a manager, caretaker and teacher.
