Today was the DTC Luncheon with speaker Marie Belew Wheatley, CEO of American Humane Association. Founded in 1877, the American Humane Association is the only national organization dedicated to protecting both children and animals. A nonprofit membership organization, American Humane is headquartered in Denver.
Marie was such a great speaker! The first person in her family to go to college, Marie had to overcome so many obstacles to get to where she is today. She talked a lot about the importance of mentoring and being mentored. One of the key points she highlighted in her talk was about finding something you have a passion for and working in that field. She was so interesting and inspirational!
