Wonderful People Wednesday is Brandi Wilson, architect, Nikela Volunteer extraordinaire.
In May 2011 Brandi became a donor, shortly thereafter she offered to help. Since then Brandi has designed auto decals for Nikela (they’re not for sale, however, we’ll send you one when you make a donation), she posts and comments on the NikelaWildlife fan page, plus provides us with news stories regarding the rhino which she is passionate about saving.
This week we highlight Brandi a valued Nikela Volunteer. Thank you for all you do.
What do you do for a living?
I am a registered architect.
Tell us a little about you and where in the world you live?
In a nutshell, I am a hopeful visionary!!
I studied architecture at Kent State University with dreams to contribute to the built environment and make the world a better place through mindful development.
In 2008, I became a LEED Accredited professional in an effort to influence the projects I was working on, and integrate sustainable design strategies.
I am continually seeking ways to use my knowledge and talent to create positive change for the future inhabitants of our world (both human and non). There is so much beauty that surrounds us, and I know that part of my mission is to help preserve it. I am excited to be volunteering for Nikela- to hopefully make an even larger impact.
How did you get introduced to Nikela?
I randomly ran across Nikela’s website one day and thought that maybe I could help…I realized that I couldn’t stand by and do nothing. Complacency isn’t in my vocabulary. The Earth is losing species faster than ever before! And is happening on our watch….UNACCEPTABLE!
Why did you decide to volunteer?
I didn’t want to leave this planet someday knowing I didn’t try to save an amazing species like rhinos.
Is your experience with Nikela benifiting your career plans, if so how?
If my volunteering helps my career someday, great!…for now, it benefits my soul!
What do you enjoy most about being part of Nikela’s Volunteer Team?
It is important to me to be able to communicate with like minded people that care and want to make a difference in their lifetime.
Care to become a Nikela Volunteer too? Here’s all you do.
