I am an engaging, stimulating communicator, poised and capable of projecting enthusiasm and warmth, and of motivating other people. I have a strong sense of urgency, initiative and competitive drive to get things done, with emphasis on working with and through people in the process.
I understand people well and use that understanding effectively in influencing and persuading others to act. I am a confident and venturesome "doer" and decision-maker who will delegate details and can also delegate responsibility with authority when necessary. I am a self-starter who can also be skillful at training and developing others.
I have been in Sales for the last 20 odd years and derived a passion for People and children… Children in general, but more so children with Cerebral Palsy simply because of my own blessing I had for 18 years, Caitlin. I have completed a Degree in Theology in 2016. I take photos for a hobby and use this same aspect to impact the lives of the people I come in contact with. I am a Director and Head Pastor of an establishment called House of Evangelise formed in 2019.
The inspiration to start The Caitlin Douman Foundation, was not only to leave a legacy but to inspire other parents to live their best lives with their children irrespective of their conditions. Over the years, I have come to understand that people in particular don’t see their children's conditions for what it is…. A blessing from God! But rather as burden. I have made a commitment to show families through The Caitlin Douman Foundation that it is not so. With a little bit of work, support and dedication to the cause, our children can live a life as “close to normal” as possible.
