The Nurse Who Started a Foundation (with Jennifer Weitzel)

Jennifer Weitzel took a roundabout path to becoming a nurse – and an even more unlikely swerve into the world of running a nonprofit organization. For the past ten years, she and her foundation (Health Ministries for Haiti) have pursued a mission of improving the lives of Haitians by focusing on  the areas of Healthcare, Nursing, and Child Education. Today, she joins Jacke (and special guest Evie Li) for a discussion of why she became a nurse, how she ended up starting a foundation, and the surprising lessons she’s learned about what makes a mission-based organization truly successful.
