Disability Employment Awareness and the Benefits of Diversity in the Workplace Tagged with:

Disability is a challenge many face around the world, but it doesn’t have to mean unemployment and a lack of meaningful work. This October we celebrate more than 70 years of disability inclusion with National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).

Married to the Chair- Coaching

Married to the Chair- Coaching Tagged with:

Have I ever mentioned that my husband and I coach track, field, and archery? Well, he coaches field and archery and I coach track and basically act as team “mom” while my husband is the “fun” one. For three or so months out of every year our life gets put on hold… the grass doesn’t get mowed, there are only weeds in the garden, our fridge remains empty, and our friends forget who we are because track season is upon us.
