These are a few of my favorite organizations

The Wetlands Conservancy

The Wetlands Conservancy is dedicated to conserving and promoting wetlands to support fish and wildlife, clean water, open space, public safety, and people’s appreciation of nature. TWC works at a variety of scales, from individual properties to regional landscapes.  
As a board member I am proud to serve and support such a dynamic organization. 

Divers Alert Network

Divers Alert Network is the diving industry’s largest association dedicated to scuba diving safety.  D.A.N. provides emergency assistance, medical information resources, educational opportunities for those just learning how to scuba dive as well as veterans of the sport.  For lovers of the sport like me, D.A.N. is a must-support organization. 

Friends of Family Farmers

Friends of Family Farmers builds a strong and united voice for independent family farmers, food advocates, and concerned citizens who are working to foster an approach to agriculture that respects the land, treats animals humanely, sustains local communities, and provides a viable livelihood for family farmers.  FoF supports issues important to our own family farm. 

Pueblo a Pueblo

Pueblo a Pueblo's mission is to improve the health, education and food security of families in rural coffee-growing communities in Latin America through integrated community and school-based programs.  As a former board member of Pueblo a Pueblo, I can attest to the great work done to protect the growers of one of my favorite beverages, Coffee! 

National Hospice & Palliative Care

National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) is the largest nonprofit membership organization representing hospice & palliative care programs & professionals in the United States. NHPCO is committed to improving end-of-life care & expanding access to hospice care with the goal of profoundly enhancing quality of life for people dying and their loved ones.

The Animal Foundation

The Animal Foundation is the highest volume single-site animal shelter in America.  Last year the Animal Foundation saved nearly 21,000 lost, homeless, and often mistreated animals.  A new organization for me to support in 2018, the Animal Foundation is a wonder in Southern Nevada and I am proud to support them.
