Back to Leadership

I have been a member of Rotary in Newberg, Oregon since 2009. Prior to accepting a position and George Fox University in 2009, most of my adult life has been spent in international humanitarian work, working on finding ways to create safe, self-sustaining communities of people in some of the most difficult places in the world. I began my career in 1966 as a conscientious objector to war working for an NGO consortium in Vietnam working with war affected people.

After receiving a Masters of Education degree from the University of Oregon, I returned to humanitarian work working both in inner city work in Portland and internationally.

My work in headquarter’s leadership positions of International NGOs has always focused on finding ways to collaborate with other like-minded organizations in order to maximize the desired outcomes that we each sought. I was a Peace Corps Country Director in Uzbekistan and Bangladesh where I was known for creating positive relationships with program partners, be they local NGOs or government bodies. Currently, I am working as the director an international summit on nutrition sponsored by OHSU bringing world class scientists together with international nutrition field practitioners for the first time to have a conversation as to how to better work together.
