First, I want to thank you for taking time to read and follow this blog. Going into this, I wasn’t interested nor did I want to start a blog or have anything to do with adding more to my already busy plate. Well, all that changed when I decided to pursue and complete my PhD in Management @ Walden University. One of the first things my advisor told me was, “Start a blog! It will help with ideas, writing and research as you lead up to the dissertation phase of the program.” Well, here I am.

Second, my experience working with and for nonprofits has given me over 20 years of valuable insight on how and why they are run. I have an affinity for nonprofits and not just the mission/vision/values they all imbue. I feel that nonprofits are at the heart and soul of humanity and the causality of change. There are so many great things that can come out of the ideas of the person whom wants to help others and is challenged to change lives. But this is not to say that all nonprofits work and will continue to be viable years to come.

Additionally, I want to highlight other experiences and passions that I have. I enjoy traveling, good spirits and art/cultural engagement opportunities. Hence this blog. I want it to point out the good and bad of all that I am involved in.

So I invite you to come on this journey with me as I attempt to stay current and cutting edge with all this life has to offer! I will look to update as much as possible, invite discussion and post articles that you learn from and use. And as always, feedback is welcome.
