Currently taking courses towards her Masters in Sustainability at Harvard, Gwen received her first degree in Economics from the University of Virginia during the cultivation of the information superhighway. She briefly worked in the financial services sector writing the business plan for the Bank of Islam to expand into western financial markets in 1996 while consulting to the Minister of Finance in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
While sitting in an interview with a top bulge bracket investment banking firm upon her return, when she answered that her favorite class was acting and the reason why, the investment banker responded, 'that is the best answer I've heard all day.' Deciding to pursue her childhood dream of wanting to act, Gwen pursued a career in Hollywood. After briefly nannying, she recognized the glitz and glamour of Hollywood was not her scene. She wanted to be a working actor and writer in New York. Upon finishing a two year scholarship at the HB studio, after 9/11 she bombed her first big audition for a new Law & Order, and her agent suggested she relocate to a calmer and more peaceful life with a small acting community, Wilmington, NC.
Gwen founded a small beach babysitting service and procured the US Army special ops early in the 2nd year. Her small business quickly grew and she expanded with the Army's needs in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. She formed a small non-profit at the same time, Global Goals of Children. A free after school program that facilitated 150 children in 7 elementary schools by having a free educational childcare program. Our mission was to foster religious and racial tolerance while raising awareness to pertinent global and societal issues.
She devised the idea of the Super Kids Group while training for her ESL in Thailand after receiving her Masters in Education from UVA concentrating in Instruction and Curriculum Design. Wanting to help parents and teachers be able to appropriately speak with children about exceptionally difficult childhood challenges such as cancer and the LGBTQI community, Gwen will be writing about a wide array of topics. If you have a child who is currently seeking medical attention, Gwen writes stories pro bono for the lower socioeconomic stratum. She believes that no child should be denied.
