A little more about me…

Vision, Values, Mission

My work and choices are guided by my vision and values.

Vision (reason for existing; my “North Star”): Being the difference for my communities.

Nurture splendid relationships
Do work that makes the world better
Do the right thing
Actualize inner harmony

Mission (how I realize my vision)
Being a presence for my family
Courage  to take on new challenges
My choices increase my well-being
