Title: VP of Development

1. What do you love about your job and why?
I have a job that enables me to utilize my interpersonal, marketing and strategic planning skills to improve the human condition. My professional satisfaction comes from working each day to combat a disease that most people are familiar with but few truly understand. The thing I love most about my work is personally interacting with those individuals I serve and hearing from them how my work helps improve their lives!
2. What are your business goals over the next five years?
My ultimate goal is to serve as National President for a leading non-profit organization. In this role I hope to raise awareness, impact lives and ultimately find a cure to improve the lives of the individuals suffering and their loved ones. My immediate business goal is to continue developing professional relationships and expand my organization’s top of mind awareness within the community.
3. How do you give back to the community?
Although career and family life dominate my schedule, I truly believe to whom much is given, much is expected. Therefore, I make it a point to support a number of non-profit organizations. I’m equally active at my children’s schools and try as often as possible to help make the world a little better.
