About Me: Retiree who is completing the mission of my 40-year RN career to find the experts who are in elected, appointed, & hired roles that also want to weave the gaps with bridges that reduce the stress of debt on students, families, entrepreneurs, and taxpayers. As the founder of the Wellness Weavers, Inc an online2local system that rewards volunteers, taxpayers, businesses & NGOs that care about the health & wellness of people & the planet, I love to creatively use our Zoom Enterprise.
I love transportation modalities & safe, adventurous travel with others who also believe that all outdoor & indoor spaces are learning & service centers.
I look forward to learning from & with the Hollywood Toastmaster Club & our networks of family & friends.
I need to be able to make the Wellness Weavers wholistic wellness system simple so people understand how we all we can be diverse servant-leaders with each other instead of enslaved & in-debt with the system that is covertly stealing our time & health & leaving their workers, customers, & taxpayers in stress & debt.
About Me: Hey there, I'm Ron. I am a professional photographer, based in South Florida. I shoot mostly weddings and portraits as my business, but also do a lot of travel photography. I work with Photographers Without Borders, doing non-profit projects around the world. One of my most recent projects took me to Ukraine, were I spent two week documenting Clean Futures Fund in Chernobyl. Our work caught the attention of the curator for Xposure Festival in Dubai, which is one of the world's largest photography conferences. The filmmaker who traveled with me and I were asked to exhibit our work and also do an hour presentation about our experiences in Chernobyl. It sounded so excited when I accepted the invitation, but then, when I realized that I might be speaking in front of hundreds of people and possibly the royal family of Dubai, my nerves really set in. I'm general a quiet person and I'm honestly terrified about getting up and speaking in front of people. I get tongue-tied very easily. This is what brought me to Toastmasters. Now I realize this organization is much more than just a group of people doing speeches, it's also about leadership and personal development. I am really excited to be here!
