I am passionate about working for global human rights and women's empowerment. I am excited about volunteering my time and leveraging my talents in sales, recruiting and fundraising to assist grassroots organizations in forwarding their missions. I am a long-term supporter of the Global Fund for Women and have recently become active in developing PulseWire. I have recently begun helping PulseWire recruit technology advisors and developing a plan to foster collaboration on the site.
