I'm a trauma survivor, an advocate for children's safety, healing and creative arts. Music and Art has and will be my saving grace. I have worked in various areas of the arts and entertainment industry, utilizing the arts for my own emotional and physical healing, and as a means to support charities such as Child Help USA, UNICEF, StopSarcoidosis, Toys for Tots, Youth at Risk, and more.
Having the ability to use executive and creative skills, my work history includes multi store management (20 stores), marketing for a major airline, window displays, journalism, coaching, and music performance.
After relocating to Arizona I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis Lung Disease. After eight years of trying various healing arts modalities while utilizing painting, I became stable. Grateful, I felt a tug on my heart to start an arts organization as a means to give back to the community though the arts, especially youth. Private music lessons and group art classes began in 2012. In 2015 Baylight Institute was approved as a Taz Exempt 501-3(C) Charity. We continue to make a difference in children's lives today. I volunteer at Baylight Institute on an average of eight hours a week. I intend on continuing as a volunteer for Baylight Institute, as well as other organizations.
I believe in giving to the world by continuing to work on myself, help organizations, and individuals. I have had incredible help myself, helping hands, financial support and kindness. I utilize the arts to help others through teaching, coaching, mentoring, and by sharing my visual art, songwriting and performing. I am happy to share with Crowdrise friends who support my causes an mp3 or art image file.
I'ld like to thank Crowdrise for creating this platform, and you readers for taking the time to learn more about me. For more info, go here: http:www.baylightinstitute.com http://www.coachmarygodfrey.com http://www.marygodfrey.com
