You were looking for a way to “give back” when a colleague told you about the organization Plumbers Without Borders. What happened then?
It took a bit of phone tag till I finally connected with Domenico DiGregorio, the founder of Plumbers Without Borders, in Seattle. We spoke about our desire to give back to society, and how underdeveloped countries could benefit greatly from the skills we have. A couple of days later, Domenico called to ask if I could fly to Haiti the following Tuesday. The earthquake had occurred, and Seattle University needed someone to help with Haiti’s water-supply challenges. I went, and it changed my life.
