Charlene is a tireless community supporter and has produced the national The Empowerment Show for women living in transitional housing shelters who have been formerly homeless or victims of domestic violence. The E-Show has been credited with helping many women launch into life with more self-confidence and self-esteem. With the generous support of Avon Corporation and Lighthouse/PATH, she also presents lectures and experiential workshops to cultivate the confidence of single mothers throughout the year.
Having written and published in the social sciences, Proctor has championed the cause of the environment by investigating recycling technologies and textile landfill recapture.

As a former simulation architect, she has researched learning organizations, female leadership, the environment, and corporate spirituality. However, her work with the Goddess Network gives her the greatest pleasure.
