Board of Directors
“I have been involved with Pathways since 1994, staffing, doing music or other things that support Pathways. So many of my dreams have come true since attending the seminars ~ from moving to my dream home in Florida and being able to see the fireworks from Disney each night to finding the love of my life and marrying her. I joined the Better World Board after moving to Florida in order to stay involved and ensure that anyone that has a financial hardship is able to attend the seminars so they too can create the dreams living inside them as I have for myself.”
I am honored and privileged to serve as the Treasurer of Pathways to a Better World. It brings me great fulfillment to help in the financial support for people who would like to attend Pathways seminars. For me, attending Pathways seminars has forever changed the course of my life. At the age of 18, I attended my first seminar and began the journey of knowing myself and my own self imposed limitations. The knowledge and tools I learned from Pathways helped me over come the fear so that I could achieve some of the dreams I had in my life. As a result, I learned that I LOVE helping people find their own path to success and serving as a board member of Better World allows me to support others in doing the same. For me, helping others brings great fulfillment! There is a saying in the Pathways seminars: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I am grateful for the opportunity to support people in attending the Pathways seminars so they can change their lives. I feel like my being on the board helps change the world one person at a time.
I started volunteering during the seminars in 2010, when my oldest daughter went to the Basic Seminar, although I attended the seminar many years prior to that. The tools and skills that I learned from the seminars have taught me how to be a leader in my personal life, with my family and at work. One of the biggest lessons that I learned is how important it is for me to put myself on the top of my to-do list – and not feel guilty about it. I stopped settling for relationships and behaviors that weren’t good for me, worked on my self-esteem, and learned how to forgive and love myself – plus so much more. Attending the seminars gave me the tools, the motivation and the support to put my dreams and goals into action. Over the years, I’ve become a Certified Life Coach, changed jobs, have created meaningful, loving relationships with my children, friends and family and am in a wonderful relationship with a man who deserves to date me.
I am forever grateful to Sue and Jeff Paige and Pathways to Successful Living for the impact the seminars have had on my life and the ripple they have created. It’s hard for me to imagine what my life would look like if my co-worker hadn’t shared Pathways with me all those years ago. As a recipient of receiving a scholarship to attend the seminars myself, it is my honor and privilege to be able to give back and pay it forward. I am extremely passionate about helping others create the lives of their dreams and to make this world a better place for us and for future generations. Being Secretary on the Pathways to a Better World Board supports those passions, and I appreciate the opportunity to continue the ripple.
I have worked as a child advocate for over 20 years in the non profit sector in the state of Colorado. I came to Pathways in 2007. Over the years I have been blessed to see so many lives change. The truest blessing to me has been to see those closest to me changed by the seminars. I am so thankful for the tools I received through the seminars and the difference they have made for me in my life. I have stopped hiding and come to a place of building open, honest and intimate relationships. The lesson that allowed me to build these types of relationships is my ability to not let my past define me, I am no longer a survivor, I am healed. I am honored to be on a board that gives scholarships to individuals trying to build better lives for themselves.
“My life has changed dramatically since Pathways due to what I learned and applied in my life. I moved across country, I love my work, and I’ve created close loving relationships with family and friends. I want as many folks as possible to experience the seminars. I believe they are an incredible catalyst for change. Staffing and serving on the Board are my ways of giving back to an organization that has changed my life. I will do my part to make sure the seminars are available to anyone that has financial obstacles so they too may attend.”
My personal growth and fulfilling life are a direct result of attending the Pathways seminars in 2002. This has left me passionate about giving the same gifts to others and creating a better world. I believe that my passion and dedication towards the Pathways mission is a due to the results I have created in my life. My desire is to support individuals in receiving the benefits that I have received by growing our scholarship fund. I have been part of producing successful fundraisers for Pathways to a Better World (Pathways Idol and the Silent Auction) and am honored to be on this board.
