Community Leadership



Following in footsteps of Marie Curie, AAUW delegation discussed status of women with leaders in Poland



My volunteer leadership with nonprofit organizations has broadened my understanding of national and community issues that impact women and families.    With extensive experience in strategic planning, finance and audit oversight, board development, fundraising and program planning, I am well equipped to lead a proactive AAUW in a changing world.
