I work at a local nonprofit in the early childhood health and development field. I believe strongly in the idea that many of the problems we face in society: poverty, crime, violence, teen pregnancy, etc. stem from inadequate education, nutrition, and medical support in a child’s early years. As a society, we spend billions of dollars trying to correct these problems instead of focusing on the 0-5 years when these issues manifest. I work to get more funding for those early years.
My ambition is to live on the ocean. With a Labrador named Yosemite (?). And live in an old house with hardwood floors and a window box. For now though, I’m really happy with where I am and what I’m doing.
