Ready to go!

I am just about three weeks away from starting my PULSE assignment and I can’t wait to get started.  I will be working with the Philadelphia Education Fund (PEF) as Special Assistant to the CEO to develop new business models to create sustainable funding sources that will enable PEF to continue to provide educational improvement needs to Philadelphia public schools.

The PULSE program offered by GSK is just so special and I am so glad that I was selected to participate.  The PULSE Volunteer Partnership is GSK’s skills-based volunteering initiative.  Through PULSE, motivated employees are matched to a non-profit organization for 3 to 6 months, full-time, contributing their skills to solve challenges at home and abroad.

I had been thinking about applying for a PULSE assignment for several years but there was always some reason to put it off.  It is such a great opportunity to not just give back, but also to learn and grow personally and professionally so I finally just went for it and fortunately I was selected and matched with an organization.

I think it is going to be a great journey and in a few weeks I will be on my way.
