Make a Positive Difference in the Lives of Others

Imagine if it were possible to help everyone you meet by making a positive difference in their lives.  That's what I love to do!  Whether it's helping someone to understand an important medical concept that can improve their health.  Coaching a specific technique of speedskating so they can corner faster with less effort.  Or helping an athlete get on the podium.
