The Women Connect4Good Team
As a writer, editor, and speaker with a degree in psychology, team leader Maggie Castrey has worked with Dr. Nancy for two decades. She has guided the Women Connect4Good team in creating web and social media content, books, magazine articles, research and speeches, whatever Dr. Nancy requires. The best part of working with the Women Connect dream team is the way we all support each other in keeping our personal lives afloat while we pursue our joint mission. Maggie grew up in the Hawaiian Islands, has pursued many adventures, and believes everyone’s life contains expansive possibilities. Maggie and her husband of 30 years live in the Midwest, four blocks from their wonderful daughter, son-in-law, and two beautiful grandchildren. She is a member of Women in Communications and League of Women Voters.
Librarian, researcher, editor, and writer Paul Duckworth brings decades of experience to the team and focuses on support where needed for Women Connect4Good, Inc. He enjoys tracking down and verifying facts as well as polishing sentences and contributing to the team’s mission overall. He relishes being able to contribute to advancing opportunities for women and helping move our culture beyond labels, limitations, and dualistic thinking. He was introduced to technology later in life and spans the worlds of both traditional print and contemporary electronic resources. He enjoys gardening, photography, cooking Indian food, reading nonfiction, and taking long walks in the woods.
Writer-producer Cathy Evans researches, schedules, coordinates and promotes Dr. Nancy’s Conversations with Smart, Amazing Women. It thrills her to connect with so many wise, accomplished women, learn about their work and help to share their messages to help other women. With a master’s degree in communications and 30+ years’ experience in writing and production for different kinds of media and purposes, she feels grateful to use her talent for such “worthy work” and to contribute to this amazing team. The WomenConnect4Good team lives the mission and works together in mutual support to deliver the most positive outcome possible. “Dream team” is not a placating term; it’s the way we would all like to work, and we feel fortunate to experience it.
