Ideas motivate me. I get all excited coming up with new ways to do things, and even more excited when they can have a positive impact in the world.
My work has been in marketing or communications pretty much my entire career, with the longest stint in nonprofit. I got to figure out new ways of doing communications for a large, international NGO – probably some of the richest years of my life.
Personally, I love to follow cultural trends and see how history relates to them. So I’ve decided that when I grow old, I will do genealogical research all day long. Every day. I’m sure my husband will be 85 and still snowboarding in our beautiful Rocky Mountains.
No matter what I’m doing career-wise, I want to use what I know and learn to help move our world forward to a better place. Sharing from my experience comes naturally and I can’t wait to do more of it. I hope I get to exchange ideas with you sometime.
About Poor Mexican Gone
The name comes from a saying my maternal grandmother made up and kicked around from time to time:
Cuando hitty con un cartuche,
no come back.
Cuando de repente pún,
poor Mexican gone.
Loosely translated from the ugly Spanglish: “When you get hit with a bullet, you don’t come back. When [the gun] goes off – Boom! – you’re dead.”
