I am part of UWS because:

With over three decades of working to support K-12 education, my journey led me to the remarkable mission of UWS. Learning how it all began with one person’s determination to make a change reminded me that within all of us lies the power to affect meaningful transformations and lead with purpose. Taking on the role of Executive Director for UWS-USA allows me to use my experience to work for an organization that embodies impactful action for a better future.
