For the last seven years I have been an at-home mom during which I have volunteered often at my daughter’s schools drilling math facts, managing projects for staff, supporting classroom activities, and planning and chaperoning field trips. Volunteer work has always played a huge role in my life, feeds my soul, and is what I am called to do. In total, I have been a volunteer and advocate for more than thirty years. Highlights of my volunteer career include being named the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi’s Volunteer of the Year and leading a campaign that raised $80,000 through the Children’s Organ Transplant Association. Prior to having my daughter I was an energy consultant on behalf of the Federal Government and utility companies executing energy efficiency and renewable energy programs on their behalf. I was a volunteer in my mother’s 4th grade classroom throughout high school and college.
