My background is in government and nonprofit management. Early this year I joined the board of a small nonprofit in Southern Indiana which is focused on providing education and awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis, a progressive lung disease that is often misdiagnosed and has no known cure. More recently I became the executive director of the organization, and over the past 6 months have had the pleasure of getting to know and work with the staff and some of the volunteers of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF). The focus of PFF is to support research efforts to find a cure for the disease, to advocate for the pulmonary fibrosis community, promote disease awareness and provide a compassionate environment for patients and their families. Everyone that I have met, whether staff, patients, doctors or donors, have been passionately committed to the success of PFF. With their support the Foundation has grown, not just nationally, but internationally. The organization has a clear vision and ambitious goals, but it also has developed the strategies and tactics to achieve them.
