In addition to her entrepreneurial work as a business consultant, Wilma is involved in several community and global non-profit organizations.
Wilma serves as an Advisor for the startup Savant Artist Collective where she works with the Director and Co-Founder Diana de Avila, an Acquired Savant. The Collective’s goal is to bring together others with Acquired Savant Syndrome whose “sudden genius” after a traumatic brain injury is the gift of art. This “accidental genius” is a rare phenomenon and the Collective hopes to educate others about it as well as share the products of this art gift with the world.
Wilma also serves on the Board of the National League of American Pen Women—Sarasota Branch, where she is president. The NLAPW is the oldest women’s interdisciplinary arts organization in the country, having been founded in Washington, DC in 1897. Its purpose is to promote and encourage the work of its member artists, writers, and musicians, to provide outreach in the arts to the community, and to support high school seniors talented in art, letters, and music with yearly awards to continue their education.
As a writer, Wilma also serves the national organization of NLAPW through co-authoring a column, Words from Nerds, in their quarterly magazine, The Pen Woman.
