Reading is Priceless


One of the greatest joys in my life was teaching my kids to read and hear them read out loud. Watching my children choose books, and immerse themselves into a story, and hear them laugh or feel the suspense of the writing is a priceless gift.  

I became a globally passionate person when I realized many mothers around the world couldn’t read and would never share this gift with their children.  I am invested in the expansion of education especially for girls because literacy is one of the greatest gifts we can provide. When my children were very small a group of 8 mothers and I from our town sponsored a group of 9 women in Nepal so they could have access to education and small business training.

Recently, My daughter, Madeline, and I traveled to Uganda to work in the school and orphanage at Kasozi Village.
