Meet our Professional Development Chair, Simone Swanson.

How long have you been involved with YNPN?: about 2 years

Where do you work: The Gathering Place

What is your favorite part of your job: being able to educate, connect and empower people to find peace through the free programs and services provided by The Gathering Place.

Favorite thing about Cleveland: The wide variety of nonprofit organizations that support people in need.

What is one thing that should be on everyone’s Cleveland bucket list: I’m not really a bucket list kind of gal, mainly because the list implies that you have time to complete x amount of things. Instead, I think we should try to challenge ourselves to push beyond our fears…that is where true growth and magic happens.

Best place you’ve ever traveled? Best place I’ve ever traveled is tough, but I am going with New Orleans. The energy is supreme.

What would a movie about your life be called and who would you want to play you? A movie about my life would be called Discovering Simone and this would be a breakthrough role for an unknown actress.

What is one book that everyone should read?  I recommend everyone to read Destiny by TD Jakes. It will change your life. Thank me later.

What is on your summer playlist? Summer playlist includes The Carters, Miles Davis, Maleek Berry…just depends on my mood.
