I grew up on the coast of Southern Maine and have had an infatuation with the sea my whole life. I’m a social entrepreneur with three decades of experience doing diversity, equity and inclusion work in healthcare, education and the business sector. I got my BA from Colgate University and my MSW from Smith College School for Social Work. I love living in sunny Sarasota, FL with my husband Neil, two teenage sons, and a growing tribe of pets.
Take a listen to my TEDx Talk: Failure and Forgiveness in the New South, delivered at University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee on 11.7.19 https://www.youtube.
