Q: How did you end up at Special Olympics?

A: Over the years, either in private practice or when I was with the NAACP, I got calls from organizations that wanted me to work for them. Usually I wasn't interested. But one day, I got a call about Special Olympics. I knew exactly the kind of organization it was and what it stands for. Everyone I have ever known who's been involved in Special Olympics has changed for the better. I wanted to learn more.

Q: What do you love about your work?

A: The athletes work here at the headquarters. We interact with them on a daily basis. They are phenomenal men and women. I am constantly reminded that what I am doing will enhance their experiences and provide opportunities for others.
