My Work for The Good Land

As non-profit Liaison I nurture partnerships and build positive relationships with prominent stakeholders, philanthropic programs, Government and Civic organizations who may wish to jointly serve with us when comprising similar missions consistent with our objectives for charitable outreach and community service.

I combine practical business background with unique humanitarian experiences thereby providing both accuracy and clarity, but doing so with great compassion and service to the community that surrounds me. I have practical experience and educational training in Customer Service, Sales and Marketing, Human Resources, Finance/Accounting, as well as Humanities/Charities leadership and planning.
