My carreer (so far) went from tourism at a base level to managing teams on resorts to working with children as a social worker to sales for a kitchen company to working in the 90's e-commerce bubble and into project management, a big move to Canada in 2001 and an exciting landing in the field that I love to work in, economic development & tourism. Almost full circle and I enjoy every minute of it! I'm hoping to built upon my knowledge of small rural communities and working with organizations. I want to help people jointly set and reach goals. Economic Development grass roots is exciting and rewarding. Action speaks louder than words!! My specialties are working with different groups, bringing people/organizations together based on a communication platform, public presenting and speaking, moderator.
