What does that mean?

My personal branding phrases, "Spirit Mender and Human Connector" and "Sharing Passions Everywhere," are the result of a former career path. They exemplify my desire to help those around me, connect humans together, foster relationships and help people share their passions. My personal philosophies and Starbucks's mission statement, "To inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time," inspired me to form these branding phrases.

These personal branding phrases were created while I was pursuing a career in public relations and business. I have since chosen a different path but I do not feel the need to change them. At the core of my desire to pursue a career in public policy and higher education is the furthering of society. There are many intimate manners by which one can describe his or her means of doing this, but I prefer to think of mine as "mending spirits" and "connecting humans" (specifically through truth).


When you’re surrounded by people who share a passionate commitment around a common purpose, anything is possible.
