What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world?

Several years ago I committed to a personal mission and called it “saying yes to anything that scares me.” Ever since that day, I have accomplished so much, both personally and professionally, and it has set me out on a path I otherwise would not have known. As a co-founder of a local not-for-profit, FountainHead RI, we have taken something that previously didn’t exist and created an ecosystem of over 1,000 business and community leaders, from across the country, to create a more inclusive, dynamic and better prepared professional community for years to come.
