Life in the Nonprofit World

I am proud to have spent my entire career working in hospitals, universities, human services agencies and various nonprofit organizations. In the following blog posts I share some of my thoughts about life within the wonderful world of nonprofits.

Just so you know, I work at the American Red Cross as a communications professional. Sometimes my job requires me to serve as a public spokesperson for the organization. This is a personal blog, however, and the opinions I share here are exclusively mine and not necessarily those of my employer.
