Adopt a Volunteer Details

Cissy

Region Assignment:North CountyVolunteer
Volunteer Since:February 2012
Why I Joined TIP:There was no doubt in my mind that I felt "called" to make a difference by coming alongside others when they are experiencing grief. The training and experience has added a vital dimension to my life where I view all people and experiences with greater appreciation for each teachable moment. It's been life changing and rewarding beyond words.
Activities Outside TIP:I am a life long learner who loves to attend conferences and do research, especially if it meets a given need. To renew my own energy I escape for camping, hiking, fishing and reading under a pine tree in the mountains with my family and dog.
One Word to Describe Volunteering:Care
Fun Fact About Volunteer:My husband and I were given the gift of being in attendance at a celebrity event Oct. 8, 1994 for Charlton Heston who entered a star studded ballroom where he was to be honored by Rush Limbaugh. Upon entrance he stood behind me and re-enacted the parting of the Red Sea over my head, then rested his hands on my shoulders. I rested my hands on his and looked up as cameras flashed upon us. That evening I also had the thrill of chatting with and applying lipstick in the bathroom of the Century Plaza Hotel alongside Dynasty star Stephanie Beacham and Rush's wife Marta who then escorted me back to my table. The next morning we enjoyed breakfast seated next to actor Tom Selleck.  It was a really exciting 24 hours for a very simple girl who felt like a princess for a night.
