My husband, two young daughters and I have lived in Parkland for two years.
In my past professional life as a Social Worker, I have been involved in counseling and care giving in shelters and institutions primarily for children in crisis.
Volunteering teaches me something about people, compassion, commitment and most of all, myself.
We all achieve something positive and thoroughly rewarding by helping those who struggle. You certainly get back more than you give.
Born and raised in South Florida, went to Saint Thomas Aquinas HS and Loyola University, New Orleans. I married my high school sweetheart and have two beautiful children.
Professionally I am the owner of an outsides sales and marketing firm here in Fort Lauderdale since 2007. We train and develop to create skills in outside sales, training, recruiting, and leadership development. We have worked with clients like AT&T, Quill.com, and Verizon, to name a few.
I have always been involved with charities and non-profit organizations since I was a child. I sit on the board for Liberty (Liberty Children's Home in Belize), and I am an Operation Smile Ambassador (a medical humanitarian non-profit organization).
My parents taught me that in life, we have to give and help others in need. I believe and try to live by the Winston Churchill quote of "we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
When I went to Liberty almost five years ago, it was clear that there is a big difference in the resources, medical attention, and support children get versus the United States. I am very involved in helping out our local causes, but we knew that these children had a disadvantage due to lack of funding and support for basic needs.
I'm humbled by the overwhelming support from the committee and their friends for improving the lives of all the children at Liberty Children's Home.
Please help us by attending, sponsoring, and donating to the Butterfly Ball.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Born in North West China close to Mongolia, I have lived and worked in 3 different continents: China, New Zealand, and the USA.
This unique life experience brings me a deep passion for understanding and learning different human, human being, and social life. Now, as I have two daughters, my focus has been rooted in children, kids, and education.
My major is international business, and I am a global logistic designer in the Health care sector. Professionally and personally, the world keeps reminding us it is NOT equal, and never will be.
As an individual, no doubt, we try to obtain the best to our children and us. However, at the same time, I wish you can join me, together, we may reduce small unequal to this world, but a significant impact on some unfortunate kids.
I moved to Florida from Minnesota after working as the Assistant Program Director for a local shelter. Once in Florida I worked as a Community Organizer, started a family and completed my MBA with a concentrated in Finance, from Nova Southeastern University. I'm currently an Associate Financial Representative at Northwestern Mutual.
My background in nonprofit work has been the driving force behind my current and extensive community engagement.
“Life is about creating something beautiful and there is nothing more beautiful than giving people the tools they need to create beauty in return."
There are so many issues that need to be resolved for us to move effectively into the future.
It can be daunting to think about all the work that is before us. However, the only thing standing in our way is ourselves.
All we really need to do is stand up and make a move in a positive direction.
My husband Michael and I, have two children Alexander and Isabel and live in Parkland, Florida, with our two dogs. I value family and feel lucky to live near my parents and four sisters.
I am the National Sales Director at PERQ, an Artificial Intelligence and Marketing Cloud firm.
Before joining PERQ, I worked as Vice President of Sales for a Multifamily Saas company and as a National Sales Manager for a Forbes Global 2000 company.
I am passionate about helping others in my professional and personal life. At a young age, I was exposed to third world countries and since then I've wanted to help the impoverished, especially children.
While attending Loyola University Chicago and during my early professional career, I chaired the service committee for AKPsi for two years and was on the Young Professional Board for Renaissance Social Service, who provides shelter and life classes to the homeless.
Liberty Children’s Home is a phenomenal organization that is helping orphans get an opportunity to live a better life. They provide shelter, basic necessities, and safety to these children.
I believe in life, we are dealt a hand of cards, and we try to play the best game we can; however, these children haven’t been given any cards.
Liberty Children’s Home gives them a seat at the table and a hand to play. When asked to join the Butterfly Ball committee, I was honored and eager to help these children.
My husband and I have lived in South Florida for over 20 years and have two children, Kameron (13) and Drew (11).
In my professional life as a Human Resources executive for GE Renewable Energy, I have enjoyed designing and executing transformational people strategies that nurture engaging workplace cultures.
I am passionate about working for a company that has a purpose to make the world a better place for everyone. That passion has carried over to my personal life as well.
As a mother, the health, happiness, safety, and success of my own two children are, and always have been, my number one priority. I’m here to contribute my experience and gifts towards Liberty Children’s Group.
My son was hospitalized two years ago, and my family and I were amazed at the support and medical care that was provided to him. To think that there are kids out there with no support, no care is simply heartbreaking.
I wanted to support Liberty to educate, protect, and empower children everywhere, and to heal and lift-up those who have been mistreated through abuse and neglect.
