Before co-founding Restore the Earth Foundation with her husband, PJ spent more than 40 years as a top strategic marketing consultant for leading professional services firms such as Bechtel Corporation, Halliburton, and Fulbright & Jaworski LLP.
Her broad experience working with senior-level executives in major international corporations makes her particularly suited to developing and leading the cross-sector partnerships that are at the heart of the REF strategy and business model. PJ has also been responsible for major fundraising campaigns for organizations such as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Houston Symphony, raising more than $50 million.
She co-founded Heart to Hand Toronto, a grassroots community organization that provides food to more than 200 disadvantaged families each year in the Toronto, Ontario region of Canada by connecting them directly and personally with volunteer and supporting families in the community. This initiative is still going strong after 20 years.
