Agency or Organization? Tips From Someone Who Made the Move
I sent my résumé for more than a year. I stalked, watched, interviewed, begged and even cried. Until once again my mom told me I was being weird. So I tried a different angle, and before long, I found myself on a journey that would shape my adulthood. Every single day, I came to work knowing I was saving puppies and kitties. How does it get any better? How much closer could I get to the backyard calling to animals that I'm here to help?
So, I'm a fundraiser having a mid-life crisis. And that's perfectly fine with me.
I am taking time to look around, lift my head and find REAL people who really want to change the world. And people smart enough to do it. Join me in this fun journey. I have no idea where we will end up - and that is the beauty of it. I'm nonprofit passionate, a hopeful world changer, and always ready to share what I know, learn what I don't, admit when I can't, and ask the hard questions.
