I am a mother, a daughter, a wife and a dog owner.
I am the founder of two award winning charities – one for orphaned and abandoned children in Russia over 20 years ago, one in Ireland for the past 5 years, for children with severe challenges in their lives, just by virtue of their surroundings.
I have a passion for people, for change. I am a possibilitarian and love taking on what seem to be insurmountable tasks. I am one of those people who can see the finish line and do not worry about the challenge of how to get there.
I love to help people realize how vital it is to find your passion in life.
I am at my happiest talking to groups of people and sharing how we have changed thousands of lives in a very difficult environment and survived the worst recession in years, when, sadly, many went under.
I genuinely believe that we are all far more powerful than we think and I believe our world needs more kindness and compassion. I believe it needs to be taught by example and from a very early age. If you add hard work and good planning to that, the results will be guaranteed.
I firmly believe that we have the power to change our world and to change how we think and work for the better, every day of our lives.
