Frances DiAnna Kinder, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT

The author shares a bit of her autobiographical in this essay. The story begins with her completing an undergraduate nursing education at a Lasallian university and becomes truly transformative during participation in the IALU leadership program in Rome. Much like the experience of De La Salle, “one commitment led to another” as she became involved in local, regional, and international Lasallian projects. This is a story of living the mission with hope and generosity.
