Most recently, that indomitable entrepreneurial spirit has found yet another outlet. In January 1995, I founded and became CEO of Profiles Unlimited, Educational Foundation, Training Institute (Profiles). An 16-year-old, not-for-profit (501(c)3), Profile’s hallmark is its unwavering commitment to systemic change through the renegotiation of existing social models. The goal? A "leveling" of the proverbial "playing field" for our community members who historically encounter barriers to fully accessing and enjoying the richly varied opportunities our society has to offer. Diminishment of the impact that indicators such as mental health status, gender, racial or ethnic heritage, economic means, and other familiar "success indicators" has on one's ability to achieve success is without doubt a goal that we wholeheartedly embrace! Profiles is committed to re-building and re-investing in our communities, one person at a time.
