Title: Director of Development and Fundraising
Company: Foundation for Dreams Inc.
What was the best business advice you ever received?
To be passionate about the choices you make in your career.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I have always been very drawn to helping people. I basically do what I always wanted to do. I enjoy helping people and was able to find positions in that field.
What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?
Leaving the security of a teaching position with a guaranteed tenure and retirement and then taking a leap of faith into a new position, challenging myself in raising funds for Dream Oaks Camp, a nonprofit and part of the Foundation for Dreams.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
I am of Italian-Irish decent. I would start in Monaco and travel along the coast to Italy, cross Italy and then ending up in Venice.
