Community Involvement

It’s also important to me to be active in my community, and I have served in leadership positions or as a board member at several community organizations. I believe that the not-for-profit sector holds the key to making our planet safer for all of its residents, and for making our lives happier and more meaningful. Recently, I have been involved with these:

Howard Gardner School “is a small independent school based in the tradition of progressive education, serving college-bound learners in grades 7-12 in Alexandria, Virginia. With a focus on environmental science and the arts, the school’s mission is to help bright, creative non-traditional learners use their unique strengths to thrive academically, intellectually and emotionally. “
Traveling Players Ensemble “provides to middle school and high school students an “intensive, classical theatre training to small troupes of actors who are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor settings. Our program reflects the origins of theatre, when troupes of actors roamed the ancient and medieval countryside, relying on the barest props and boldest imagination to convey their art.”
“Mount Vernon Unitarian Church is a welcoming congregation whose “members seek a moral, religious, and ethical experience as a community and individually, and to provide a foundation for our children in which they can grow and learn as thoughtful and principled members of society.”
Alexandria Choral Society “aspires to enhance the cultural life of the city of Alexandria and surrounding communities by presenting engaging musical programs at the highest artistic level.”
