About the Event
About the Presenter(s)Mary Price Dunn
As a distinguished leader in the nonprofit sector, Mary pioneered programs to engage people – just as they are – in courageous and hopeful change. While serving as CEO of a charitable foundation, she developed a groundbreaking grassroots initiative to help people build stronger, healthier communities in the rural towns of New Mexico. The program continues changing lives today.
Mary now focuses on the spirituality of aging and legacy. She is the creator of the Legacy Workshop and Your Story, Your Legacy Retreat: A Full Sensory Exploration and has been leading workshops and retreats for many years. In Mary’s words, “As human beings, we long to be seen and understood for all that we are and what we are becoming. We want to know that the value we are creating in our lives will be meaningful to others – that it will be a gift, our true legacy to future generations.”
Alanna is retired from a highly successful practice as a tax CPA. In her work with clients on estate and trust tax matters, she found that surviving spouses often feel unprepared to face new – and unexpected – financial responsibilities and realities. Helping clients understand and manage their finances after the loss of a loved one became one of Alanna’s key specialties.
Alanna has served on exempt organization boards and finance committees, most recently the Franciscan Renewal Center and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Always an avid reader, her interests the last ten years have focused on mindfulness and spirituality, and she follows a daily practice of centering prayer and meditation. Altogether, Alanna brings to Your Story, Your Legacy Retreat: A Full Sensory Exploration a wonderful balance of financial wisdom and a spiritual understanding of legacy.
