About me. In 2011 I created the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC to continue leading the Tutor/Mentor Connection in Chicago and to help similar intermediary groups form in other cities.

I combine 40 years of unique experiences into my leadership of Cabrini Connections and the Tutor/Mentor Connection. Few people in the US have a similar depth of involvement and experiences. * 17 years advertising management in national retail store corporation, creating advertising to draw people to 400 stores in 40 states * 4 years as Loaned Executive in Chicago's United Way Crusade of Mercy. Served as consultant to Big 6 accounting firms and major corporations, helping each develop leadership giving and employee donation campaigns * 3 years in US Army Intelligence and 4 years history major in college, where I learned to use knowledge for innovation and decision support * 36 years leading a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program, connecting workplace volunteers and inner city kids. This has enabled me to create and innovate solutions to complex problems when others only see obstacles. I believe the Internet has changed the future because of its potential to connect a few people who care about the same cause, but come from different places, and different time zones, with ideas and with tools for collaboration and problem solving.
