Profile Information

About me...
Hi - I'm one of the community managers for the Employment Network. If you need to contact me, you can leave a message below or email me at

I believe that every person has gifts to share - no exception! Coming together online gives us an opportunity to learn with and from each other.

I'm very interested in ways to bring people together to talk about what matters to them, using techniques such as World Cafe, technology, etc.

You can find out more about me at:
Why are you joining the Employment Network?
I love to see people connecting around their shared interests and passions. Every member has so much to share.... I hope they will take this opportunity to learn from each other.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to garden, bake, read and ride my bike.

Asset-Based Community Development

As a Fellow with the Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) Center (affiliated with the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University) and a trainer on ABCD and community connecting, I believe communities benefit from recognizing the gifts of all its members.  Check out these resources to learn more about ABCD:

Thanks, Deb. I will try to figure out this webpage and leave anything I can learn. I am sorry, but I hear much about counseling, planning, and incentives but very little of substance on actual jobs a disabled person can do. I already have an education and don't require training. I just need to know who would hire me.
