My dedication to continuous learning, connection with others, and giving back has led me to extensive service opportunities in local and global non-profit organizations such as Big Brothers and Sisters, Cross-Cultural Solutions, Dress for Success, Habitat for Humanity, Step-Up Ministries, TABLE, and The Fuller Center for Housing. Working with these incredible organizations and extraordinary people taught me to value experiences and relationships over material things.

Volunteer and personal travel to Belgium, Brazil, Cambodia, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Holland, Honduras, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Switzerland, Thailand has enriched my life and cultivated a passion to make a positive difference.

My graduate training in International Relations with an emphasis on International Business (University of Texas, 2000) with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies and Marketing Communications (University of Wisconsin, 1993) has helped me to regard global business problems and opportunities from a well-rounded perspective.

When not off on a philanthropic adventure with my husband, I work in Digital Insights and Global Insights.
