I am a Preschool Teacher. I have Bachelor Degree in Child Development. Have for over 18 years experience working with children from special to regular edu classes. New Born to High School age. I have a passion to work with people. I volunteer all over the place just staying involved with community and reaching out to people. I am currently a volunteer for Hadassah Group (Jewish moms group), March of Dimes, and now I had just joined Las Madres Group for moms who have had preemies (another moms group).

When people tell me no I work harder,

I'm a bilingual special education teacher. I am also a licensed learning consultant. My passion is sign language and I have a pretty good command of it. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Hi. My name is Shonia Burch. I just found this site only about a month ago, so I'm a little late with the resume. I am a Mortgage loan officer, licensed in Georgia and North Carolina. I would be glad to help in anyway possible. Actually, I have given thought to changing careers since we lost our baby girl due to Preeclampsia in Oct. of 2003. Please let me know of anything I can do to help, I love and appreciate you all so much.

The Preeclampsia Foundation needs ALL kinds of talents to get our work done. It would be great if you could post for us a little "resume" (like a paragraph) saying things you could donate in terms of skills and knowledge. Some examples include: non-profit management experience, non-profit legal experience, medical (be specific), printing, advertising, social work, crisis management, financial planning, etc...

Thanks! We need all the help we can get if we are going to do what needs to be done.

Like Catherine, I am also a young SAHM who didn't finish school (yet...I hope!). I did volunteer work for two years answering phones for the county crisis line here. I handled things like suicide, rape, child abuse, people just needing to talk, etc. I consider myself to be a very good listener. I don't know how my other interests would help the PF, I play the piano and am also religious. I also love to write, articles, research papers, whatever. If there's anything I can do, please let me know. I would love to help out in any capacity!

Also, my husband is in managment for a national pizza chain. They do fundraisers ("dough raisers") quite often for local schools, church groups, etc. He would be happy to do something for the PF, but it would have to be done on a local level here, so i don't know how much interest is would spark. Something to think about...

DANG! You ladies are all so well educated and highly skilled!

I'm a young sahm who didn't finish her education...lol I was moving to attend paramedic school when I got engaged to dh and that was the end of that!

So, here it goes...I have worked in the medical field since I was about 16. Most of my knowledge is in EMS.
I have a goodly ammount of religious learning, though that won't do much for the PF! lol
I have studied culinary arts and love to cook, but don't ever ask me to make a pie crust!
I am also musically and artistically inclined.
I tend to have a little experience in alot of areas.

So, other than being willing to help, there isn't too much that I have to offer. Let me know!

BSN over here... My resume details, Emerency Room Nurse, along with Critical Care, ICU etc... I also do a discussion group for new residents at St.Louis Children's Hopsital when new residents come on board. We have a sit down discussion on what it is like to parent in the NICU. They hear what it is like to be on Mag, have PE and of course, we get to spotlight our angel Katlyne, as we show her tribute to them. (Never a dry eye esp from the Attendings who were Kat's doctors!) DH is a network Admin and I know he would do anything he could to help.

So anything that we can do just let me know.....

Such a diverse pool of talent!

Anne, as you know. I am a procurement specialist for not for profit and non-porfit orgs. In a nut shell, I get non-profits what they want (or at least I try [:D]). I have done some fundraising and grant writing.
