Maureen lives by the Dalai Lama’s saying, “It is not enough to be compassionate-you must act.” Advancing critically needed organizations that better the lives of individuals and the world in which we live is a worthy way to spend one’s career. Maureen is grateful to be part of CCS – an organization that is dedicated to both feeling compassion and acting.
Maureen enjoys spending time with her two nearly grown children, frequenting cultural events from art exhibitions to dance performances, swimming in the San Francisco Bay, bike riding in West Marin, attempting New York Times crossword puzzles, and volunteering for an organization that engages youth in the political process and inspires them to be informed citizens.
Maureen received a B.A. in Art History from University of Delaware and an M.B.A. from Golden Gate University.
