Exhibit change by:

Change has been a huge part of my life. Leading change in a nine decade old organization (GSUSA) has been my life's work. Empowering girls to lead and take action has been my greatest pleasure. I am pleased that we now have President Obama, and that change is happening in the uSA, esp. for girls and women... but also in areas of the environment, health care and the economy.
We are at a crossroads for change and I am pleased to be a part of it all!

I'm passionate about:

Girls and Women, Equal Rights, Health Care, Environment, and Historic Preservation. I am involved on the board of the Western Folklife Center www.westernfolklife.org,Where I am a promoter of the contributions of women in the development of the American West, as well as their current contributions to Western culture.
