Thanks for asking. Jaime is in charge of this event. I am the "pretty face" and nosy lady who butts in with comments. The headquarters for the PF is in Bellevue, WA but the administrative headquarters (where the HARD work gets done) is with Jaime in Minnesota. Always good to clarify that for those who are still wondering.
"My" job is to be the face and voice of the organization--so I am available to speak at events, to talk to the press, to bug big business about $$, and to write about the disease. I don't really have any other talents so feel free to use those as much as you need. I am happy to come to states and meet groups--just need that group to arrange for airfare (coach), accomodations (the sleeper sofa is just fine, sleeping with Gramma Ruth is questionable), and local transportation, food, etc...Since I work at a "day" job--I can really only come on weekends and can only travel one weekend a month--so you need to arrange that with Jaime and me in advance. I am also very happy to travel on short notice in the event of a woman dying. Please contact me if you learn of such sad news.
