Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Survivor of DV, Survivor of TBI, and understand a lot about misunderstanding, and experiencing meeting people that are not as informed and react in ways that are not appropriate but want to educate, inform and help others build better communication skills towards a more peaceful world. Always reading, researching and learning more because I feel that if one is open to learning new things and meeting new people(I am working on the trust thing) then communications with others should improve.
Please list the countries and/or regions in which you (or your organization) have direct and significant expertise
I do not feel I am an expert just yet but I have valuable experience. I have traveled to UK(England , Scotland Wales and Orkney's Main Island with a college program), Cuba(3 times-very much an eye-opening experience), Puerto Rico, Canada and while attending the Millenium Conference Ending Domestic Violence in Chicago in 1999 met women from other countries that do not have a voice and are trying to find ways to improve their lives. Oh, and I lived in Texas a year which is like its own country mentality.
What is your current country of residence (or location of your organization)?
USA
What is your current job (and organization) and/or where and what field are you studying?
I do not want to be specifically descriptive due to safety but I am part of a women's group of DV survivors aiming at ending DV. Would like to study Educational Psychology for my masters degree in many avenues.
Which are your primary sectoral areas of expertise (or the primary sectoral areas of your organization) ?
Education, Information and Communication Technology, Organizational Development
Which are your primary skills areas(or the primary skill areas of your organization)?
Advocacy, Budgeting, Fundraising, Information Technology, Program Design

Hi Laura,
I was wondering as to what time were you going to send me the DVD you talked about. Also, Is it possible for you to do a fundraiser for CWI any time this year in your area?
Peace and love , Laura.

So glad you had an enjoyable and very worthwhile trip.
I just visited the Middle East - Israel, the West Bank & Jordan. And I also enjoyed seeing as much variety as I could and meeting so many diverse people. It's so different to actually see things for yourself, and talking to people, instead of relying on what we get from the media - which is an entirely different matter of course :) Actually it was my honeymoon, as I just got married.

Yes, I noticed from your profile that you've travelled around the UK a fair bit!
I'm in North Dorset, in the South West, not so very far from Bath really. Actually, fairly close to Glastonbury.

Yes, certainly. And it all helps, for sure.
