UPDATE: I wrote this back in May of 2008 ~ Interesting to look back on and all still quite true. For more About Me, including a link to my resume, you may visit my Get My Profile page.
My name is Nancy Darcy Gallant and I’m a mother of three, typical teens, wife to one, very patient, state trooper and part-time caregiver to his our lovable K-9 German Shephard. I am was a stay-at-home mom who actually spent a considerable chunk of the last decade outside of my home, in volunteer service to my community as a long-time activist, student and patient advocate, and, in general, chronic volunteer, most often in a leadership role. Currently, I am transitioning into a new stage of my life, as many 40somethings are, and am pursuing my innovative concept I have for a triple-bottom-line social enterprise.
In a financially-self-sustaining, non-profit structure, my social mission is to empower like-minded suburban citizens, particularly those facing a life transition, to increase their involvement and positive impact on the community, the region, the country and the world. In-so-doing, the quality of life will be improved for all in some way, including those beneficiaries of our charitable efforts, as well as the quality of life of all those involved and their families. A perfect partner to my social mission, my environmental mission is to expedite the current trends toward increased awareness, knowledge, understanding and life choices that relate to environmental stewardship.
Have I lost you yet????
Believe me! It’s going to be fabulous! It’s all in my head, as well as in notebooks, on laptops and desktops, and scribbled with every writing implement imaginable on whatever paper-resembling item in reach… Why trust me? Why not? Okay, here’s a little more background…
In a past life (no, not really), I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bentley with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing. Currently, I am a member of the Bentley Alumnae Women’s Chapter. (You can go to my post/tribute to my Alma Mater by clicking here.) My considerable and varied life experiences and strong educational background, complemented by a “Renaissance soul” and an “absent-minded-professor” thought process, have led me to this point in time…
I feel a sense of stewardship to my business concept and pursue it with the full knowledge that my vivid vision is the single most important thing that I bring to the table. To make that vision a reality ~ to put the foundation under the castle, so to speak ~ is not something I can do alone. It will take a collaborative effort of dramatic proportion. By its very nature, the effort itself, the journey, will serve both the social and environmental missions at every step along the way, engaging the minds and hearts of all involved.
If you are still reading this (thank you), I hope you will consider joining me at some level of participation. No pressure. No guilt, No regrets. Just doing good, for your own good, the good of our families, each other, our community, our fellow man, particularly those less fortunate, and our environment.
