There's a first time for everything, right? Earlier this year it was brought to my attention that there was an open spot on the PMSF BoD. I contacted the president to inquire. Much to my surprise, I was invited to apply for the position. I did, and I was accepted!
I recently returned from a trip to Florida, where I attended my very first, of hopefully many, BoD meetings. I had the pleasure of seeing some familiar faces and also meeting new ones! In addition to BoD members, there were also committee chairs and others that are heavily involved in the Foundation. It was a wonderful meeting and I am humbled beyond belief by my new position.
I really cannot imagine being more passionate about anything in my life. The Foundation's mission and values are aligned with mine. I am prepared to accept my new role and eager to do all I can to help all that are affected by Phelan McDermid Syndrome.
