Hello and Welcome
Before you go any further, I’d like to thank you for taking an interest in me, my life and my work. I hope my digital home will be an inspiration and an invitation to you to join me in any aspect of my work that speaks to your heart, your mind and your desire to make a difference and move humanity forward.
It’s in my DNA to strive for a life of purpose and meaning, but as we all know, figuring out your passion and purpose can be a challenge. Sometimes when you do find your way, the path can change, leaving you to question yourself, doubt yourself, and have to start all over again.
My own journey has been full of twists and turns. At times, I have felt certain, and then uncertain. Strong, then insecure. Powerful and powerless. Fearless and also racked with fear. But throughout it all, one thing has always been constant: My faith and my passion to make a difference and be of service to my family, my community and to the world.
Today, my mission is clear. I want to challenge what is, imagine what can be, make a difference and move humanity forward in all areas of human endeavor. That’s what Architects of Change do — I consider myself one, and I work to shine a light on others.
I also believe my mission is to wipe out Alzheimer’s disease once and for all because it is destroying millions of lives. Young and old. Patients and caregivers. And, it’s bankrupting our country. In 2003, my own father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Since that time, I haven’t stopped fighting for a cure. Along the way, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Takes on Alzheimer’s reported for the first time that two-thirds of brains that develop Alzheimer’s belong to women! Why does Alzheimer’s discriminate against women? No one seems to know. That’s not acceptable to me. That’s why I started The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement – to raise the stakes for women-based research and to use my voice to inform people of the facts and galvanize communities so we can answer that question.
Moving humanity forward. That is my ministry. That is my mission. I hope you will join me.
