Day job/career: I coordinate and manage the Charleston CST classes, alumni refreshers, public speaking opportunities and local marketing for our chapter.
How did you become involved with OCL? After I resigned from my previous nonprofit of 12 years and stepped out in faith, I just KNEW the right organization would be put in front of me…and here we are! Luckily I was familiar with the OCL name and had seen a class posted online a couple years prior, but of course, I felt ‘three days was hard to do.’ Within the same day I saw the job posting, two previous board members of mine sent the link and stated they thought this was right up my alley. I took it as a sign and knew it was meant to be my path.
What is your hope for OCL? My hope is that our organization and course is a community movement - truly making waves. Impacting our neighbors at work and home by creating or mending heartfelt and genuine relationships. Allowing our course to give them a ‘clean slate’ if needed and that our message can help everyone feel empowered to be their best self, using their heart to move forward in leadership and also with friends and family.
