Membership in a Rotary club affords one the opportunity to serve others.  I joined the Thiensville-Mequon Rotary in 2003 to help improve the lives of others not just in my community but internationally.  I helped organize and implement GMRP (Guatemala Medical Resources Partnership) in 2005 that is still going strong to this day.
The team provides medical, dental, and vision services to people in the rural area of Oliveros, Guatemala.  I am also proud of the work our club does to improve the local community by building Rotary Park and the Riverwalk.  We help those in need locally with food and diaper collections throughout the year.  Rotary affords one the chance to build meaningful connections with like-minded civil servants and leaders.  We also partner with other service organizations and fellowship abounds.  Rotary International works to make the world a better place by providing clean drinking water, polio vaccinations, micro loans, shelter, scholarships, grants, and Youth Exchanges.
