I have an extensive background in the non-profit sector, having been an Executive Director of a Chamber of Commerce, a Development Director for a youth organization, and a Creative Director for a church. In addition, I am a freelance writer with an emphasis on grants. In my role here as Executive Secretary, I have the distinct pleasure of serving our Board of Trustees, recording their activity and initiatives, as well as tracking and reporting the success of Mote's operational and strategic plan goals. Somehow, with the help of many, I also managed to raise three amazing children!
