Yes, I believe that we are all one on this planet – people, animals and botanical organisms. One for all and all for one. I wish to do more someday for the greater community. Some of what I’ve done so far includes serving as a board member for the West Contra Costa Public Education Fund and a volunteer for the Washington Elementary School “Many Hands” project. Both programs give children an opportunity to grow and achieve their potential.
I’m an avid outdoors person and enjoy backpacking, cycling and hiking. Most of my volunteer time now is spent leading backpack trips for Sierra Club, following John Muir’s philosophy that people will fight for what they love. Currently, I am the finance officer for the Sierra Club’s California / Nevada regional committee. My cycling adventures have included riding from San Francisco to Los Angeles on an AIDS fund-raising ride and participating in the Annual Leukemia and Lymphoma National Team in Training fund-raising bike ride around Lake Tahoe.
