For as long as I can remember I have felt deep inside of me there was something BIG I was supposed to be doing with my life. Not knowing what it was and even a little fearful, I found myself quite content to be in the comforts of my home living a simple uneventful life. That is what I thought anyhow. I now understand that many events occurred during my uneventful life that lead me exactly to the place I was meant to be.
Over the last couple of years I have embraced what makes me come alive. I am now ready to share what I have to offer with the World! Below are some ways we could work together. Feel free to reach me through email if you have other ideas: firstname.lastname@example.org
Public speaking excites me! I have a talent for finding how everything is connected. Specifically, I aspire to help groups find their voice and how to use it for good. I am a registered nurse by profession and have used that degree to teach LPN students, run a high school clinic (where I presented health trainings to 150+ teachers), provide after hours telephone triage care for a group of pediatricians, facilitate a leadership program for adolesents and teach an adult ESL class. I feel comfortable speaking about a wide range of topics with the underlying them of "coming alive"!
I truly believe that every organization, whether a small business, large corportation, government entity, non-profit, NGO, school, or place of faith has a commonality and a desire to do good in the world. I have a tremendous amount of ideas in my head that could showcase the positive work that is being done, so that more people pay attention and want to be involved.
I love writing and feel I have the ability to awaken the sleeping activist in everyone. Over the last few years I have been published several times on the ONE blog recieving great feedback. Some of my favorites are I Have Already Changed the World and Straight Talk. I was also published in the Carolina For Kibera 2010 Annual Report as well as on the ABC Million Moms Challenge website.
