Tami Franklin ~ Founder and President 


I am an action-oriented individual with a passionate call to the well-being of humanity. I am an experienced dance instructor and small business owner with strong leadership and interpersonal skills which guide my desires to empower and mentor individuals and groups.  I am a life-long learner and will continue to gain experience and knowledge while utilizing my education from life experiences alongside my BA in Anthropology and MPA in Global Philanthropy from Missouri State. Guided by my anthropological perspective, ethical leadership, and my entrepreneurial spirit I will joyfully spend my life in public service, community development, and nonprofit management.
