I am undertaking a mid-life career transition from the corporate world to the arena of women's advocacy. Women's issues & advocacy are topics I have always been passionate about, and I have finally decided to make them the focus in my life. I am getting more involved in women's organizations in my community, joining groups like World Pulse, and looking for a job in the field of women's advocacy. In addition, in the fall of 2010 I will be starting a MA in Women's Studies & Gender Studies. This will be my second masters. My first was a Masters of Science in Communication (MSC) from Northwestern University, awarded in 6/06. I love learning and being exposed to new ideas, people, and ways of thinking. Education truly "unzips the mind" and opens up a world of possibility. Equity and education for girls and women. Gender issues in the workplace. Determining my path, and how best to pursue it.

My Vision for the Future
Helping to make a difference in the lives of girls and women.
