I believe passionately in the work of the nonprofits I partner with and the communities they serve. These organizations are about changing lives, whether advocating for foster children or providing a place to learn through play or training at-risk youth job skills through the arts. Why is historic preservation important? How can we create communities that live in harmony? How can we support the changing world of older adults? What can we do to empower artists? Sharing the core values and mission of these extraordinary people is what I value and what gets me up each and every day.
That…and a hot cup of mocha!
