One of my favorite clients, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), held its conference June 22-25 in Washington, DC. I was proud to photograph the events. Not surprisingly, it was a great conference - wonderful content, great member participation, and fabulous presenters. NASW team did an amazing job! Yet another reminder to follow your passions. Do what you love. Love what you do . . . each and every day.
Among my top resolution priorities In 2016: Working on the grassroots team in Virginia to elect Hillary Clinton as #45 - the next President, and the first woman President, of the United States. These efforts are already well underway. This resolution should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me. I am a Democratic fundraiser for Members of Congress, have worked my entire career in politics and journalism and I worked for the Bill Clinton Administration at the White House in the 1990s.
Hillary is a phenomenal leader with amazing depth on issues across the board. She is in this "to make a difference" which directly aligns with my own values: Uniting with other like-minded individuals and groups to work on issues and causes that are important to us . . . to truly make a difference. To learn more about Hillary Clinton's positions on issues, to donate, and/or join the grassroots team, please visit Hillary For America.
