What I enjoy most when working with a partner
I seek to empower and inspire and take the definition of philanthropy – love of humankind – very seriously. It is an incredible gift to work with individuals, organizations and corporations who truly want to do good, better. There is truly JOY in the work of philanthropy and watching others eliminate barriers to success for others and achieve their goals through philanthropy is transformational. To have the opportunity to share in that experience is extremely rewarding.
