Marketing & Communications

The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or touched.
However, when I have the freedom to think out of the box
and make a real difference,
I touch compassion and innovation every day.

Community Development

I have always loved solving puzzles.
Not only finding answers, but identifying the relevant questions.
Small, consistent change is often better than the big splash,
so we keep refining our methods.

Project Support

I am a busy bee
flitting from one project to another,
in and out of sticky situations,
and I couldn’t be happier.
