Director, Corporate Strategy and Business Development, Wolters Kluwer Health
“Special Olympics has been an important part of my family life for as long as I can remember. It has given my brother, a Special Olympics athlete, all things that each of us seeks in our lives: courage, pride, self-confidence, friendship, purpose, comradery, inclusivity, community, joy and sportsmanship. Most importantly, it has brought my brother and my entire family happiness. Sitting on the Board of Directors allows me to share that happiness with others like my brother.”
