This webinar will be led by Dr. Ronda Ansted. Dr. Ansted has spent most of her professional life in the non-profit and international development fields. She was a mid-career PCV in South Africa and became a career consultant after seeing how so many people who wanted to make a difference in the world got burned out after choosing careers that looked good on paper but didn't fit who they are. Her practice is dedicated to getting people into their right-fit careers so they can make a meaningful impact in the world and live a life they love.
