I have been blessed with opportunity in my life and I would like to provide the same chance at a better life for others around the world. I love the "hand up" philosophy that microcredit embodies. One day I hope to have the time and resources to make a larger impact on the world, but for now Kiva gives me the chance to help make a difference outside my own country.
My work life is quite varied...
I am a Registered Nurse working part-time at a large hospital on a Mental Health unit. I love the chance to help people through times of crisis and work with them to achieve a state of greater health. It is the chance to make a difference in someone's life each day I am there, even if it is a small difference.
I am also in the process of starting my own business offering tax and financial planning services to small business clients. I have over 10 years experience in the field and I love the chance to help others succeed in their business and personal financial lives... a bit like Kiva does for people around the world!
