Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." 

As a young adolescent during the Viet Nam war, I saw the power of activism and it shaped my life. My work focused on leading and empowering individuals and groups to create a better future for themselves and their communities. I achieved these goals through careers in community & economic development, and higher education.

Now that I am semi-retired, cooking, reading, photography, gardening, hiking, and being a grandparent fill my time.
