• In August, a couple of years ago, I was invited to join my friends Gloria & Bob @sanclemente_traveler while they went on a mission trip.  While on this trip, I met Dana @danaruizslp the most amazing SLP who works for @operationsmile along with many other selfless and dedicated professionals from all over the world. It was an incredible and unforgettable experience which I will hold dear to my heart forever.  Helping children is by far our highest calling! 💗 Color me “tickled pink” to witness how Operation Smile and its wonderful volunteers make a world of difference each and everyday!

• A few years ago, I was asked to volunteer for Project Vietnam Foundation — what a privilege!  Here’s a photo of Lisa (pediatrician), Doug (youtuber & tech guy), and me (speech language pathologist). While we were there, we served on the cleft lip & palate pre-op team, taught in universities and hospitals, and visited orphanages and special needs schools. The Vietnamese people were so grateful for the teaching and the interventions they received. It was a wonderful and rewarding trip AND the food was incredible!! Cam on!! 😁 @nukemdukemz @projectvietnam

• As often as I can, I volunteer for local free dental/medical missions. The one in this picture was held at our church a few years ago. There are so many people who don’t have insurance and could not otherwise get help. Some are homeless, some are in utter pain with a variety of issues, and others just need hand while they’re temporarily struggling to get back on their feet. Having worked for oral & maxillofacial surgeons before becoming a speech pathologist, I can pitch in and love doing it. AND... I will truly work for licorice! 😂

• Recently, a friend of mine (who may or may not be the gorgeous woman in the boat with me😉), told me that I should post more pix of myself. SO, I’m gonna do that featuring some fun people and things in my life that I treasure.  This friend, Valerie, has been SUCH an inspiration to me. We’ve traveled the globe together, she’s encouraged me to go to the gym with her on a regular basis, she’s modeled healthy food choices, has reminded me to stay hydrated, and helped me keep my ancient skin from completely shriveling up with her products! 🤩 Follow her to know more @valerie_delcarlo! In addition to all of that, she holds my hand when life gets tricky and shares wisdom with me on a regular basis, because her faith is SO incredibly strong. 😇 And not only that, she’s the most amazing mom, wife, friend & teacher of the year! 😎 I love you my friend! 😍 Thank you for supporting my work, life, health balance!!!! @rodanandfields
