Helen Dunlap

She’s staying current and engaged with her current clients.  Find out what zoom “cocktail hours” and appetizers  offers and how she imagines being there with friends. She has been lagging in learning technology until the coronavirus. Now she feels she may find new ways to communicate rather than travel. She is having much different conversations with clients and is keeping up with her clients more on a personal level. Her clients are primarily in the nonprofit sector and are continuing to work.

She misses getting outside and going where she wants to go. She is a bird-watcher and identifies birds as she travels around the country. Communication with old friends is filling the space and hopes she can continue doing this after the coronavirus pandemic. She wanted to foster a cat now that she’s at home more, but no cats were available.

She is reevaluating how her life might be reorganized using technology.  Technology may take the place of travel more in the future.
