Hello my name is Patricia Ann Rossy. My Vitiligo came to me in 1997 as a small spot. Vitiligo is now over my entire body.
Vitiligo brought me to VITFriends and today, I am the Vice President of this wonderful support group and in charge of VITFriends State Representatives. I am excited to be on board with VITFriends to help and encourage others and help them conquer any fears or doubts. We at VITFriends all know and we remind each other that God has created us fearfully and wonderfully, and Vitiligo is just a thing that shows us off. My goal at VITFriends is to build and help make a stronger organization for those who will call on us for support.
I am currently employed as a personal administrative assistant for an investment banker. I serve on the Board of the Marriage Ministry and also on the Board of the Real Life Theater at Bethel Gospel Assembly in Harlem, NY. In my spare time I fine great enjoyment in designing and selling my own jewelry.
We WELCOME Sharon E. Walcott to the position of Chair person to the Board of Directors for VITFriends.
Under Ms Walcott's leadership, VITFriends is planning major expansion for the organization in 2011, to increase vitiligo awareness via social networking, conferences and events. Ms. Walcott's older sister, Shirley Walcott has had vitiligo almost her entire life. Sharon would like others to see vitiligo as she sees it – beautiful spots!
Ms. Walcott is a sales executive for TeleSurveys, Inc., an innovative market research firm based in Montreal, QC; and an inside sales representative for International Air Freight, a general sales agent (GSA) for three airlines. Previously, Ms. Walcott served as a Global Market Research Project Manager at the Monitor Group, an international management consulting group.
