I turn 40 this year, which feels significant. I love to laugh. Passionate about freedom: for women and children from injustice, freedom from sex trafficking (today’s modern day form of slavery) and poverty. Growing up overseas in Central America means I feel half Latin and speak Spanish fluently. My favorite thing to is to hear people’s stories and what God is teaching them and doing in their lives. I’m intrigued by how the small things in life are frequently used to teach us things or show us part of His character.
For the last few years, I’ve worked at a university in the South, as an international student recruiter. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Instructional Design. Prior to higher education, I worked in the fair trade industry for 15 years as a buyer, distributor and marketer. I believe all people have the right to a job with dignity to produce products and not be the product. My passion and expertise helps as I consult with artisan/producer groups who are looking to broaden their market in the US. Along that vein, I authored an eBook, Sustainability to assist those in the throes of looking to help artisan groups develop and import products to the US.
I strongly believe we can better change the world working together, than individually. Will you join me?
