There, she enjoyed a downward income trajectory but raised hopes of one day getting into heaven. As a back-up plan, she has volunteered for numerous organizations, serving on the boards of the Institute for Conservation Leadership (2002 - present) and the Laird Norton Family Foundation (1992-2000, 2004 - present). Since moving to Oregon in 2006 she has served on the Steering and Program Committees for the Oregon Nonprofit Leaders Conference. She also serves on the board of the Rogue Farm Corps.
