“The Wild Rivers Community Foundation looks at each community as having individual needs, but also works to build on the commonalities shared between each community in the Wild Rivers Region,” she said.

In addition, she is an international board certified lactation consultant and a certified birth assistant for Curry General Hospital.

She lived for one year in Costa Rica where she worked with a small hospital providing education and consultation to new mothers.

  • Look to energy names for global demand clues
    Profit growth expectations for S&P 500 energy companies have fallen more than any other sector - from a forecast of 13.8 percent on July 1 to the current 1.8 percent, Thomson Reuters data showed. With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil (XOM.N), Chevron (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV.N), there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names. The energy sector over the last 20 weeks has spiraled from being the market leader to now ranking as its most distant laggard, according to a Relative Rotation Graph study, which analyzes the relative performance of the constituents of an index. The S&P energy sector up about 6 percent from Oct. 15, while the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent from its Oct. 15 low and the benchmark index on Friday posted its best weekly gain since early January 2013.

  • China's auto market growth may halve to 7 percent this year: industry body head
    Growth in China's auto market, the world's biggest, will halve to 7 percent this year weighed down by a slowing economy, the head of an industry body said on Saturday. "Personally, I think growth this year can reach 7 percent," Dong Yang, secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), told reporters on the sidelines of an industry conference in Shanghai. The auto industry would reflect that but typically lags the economic cycle by a bit." CAAM had forecast China's auto market, which grew by 13.9 percent last year, to expand at 8.3 percent in 2014.
