VOLVO: Volvo XC40

WORKPLACE: Delaware HIV Consortium

TITLE: Executive Director

UNION PARK VOLVO CUSTOMER: Since 2002. I have been a loyal customer of Union Park Volvo for more than 17 years. During this time, I have purchased or leased six other new Volvo's from Union Park: S90, S60, V60, XC60, just to name a few.

WHAT MOTIVATES ME: I have worked in the HIV field for the past 30 years in IL, AZ and now DE for the past 17 years. I am motivated by helping empower people living with HIV disease to live their lives to the fullest and to have optimal health outcomes. I long for the day when HIV has been eradicated and I have worked for three decades to help bring this about. My yoga practice, travelling, my faith, the ocean, family, husband and puppies all motivate me to be the best person that I can be!

I believe action speaks louder than words….and that it is everyone's human responsibility to give back whatever they can because blessings given will become blessings received. Namaste.
