Message from our Founder

My name is Wilfredo Betance Jr, and I'm the founder and president of Inspimind. I started this company because I didn't have someone to guide me to live a productive lifestyle, and because I didn't have a positive role model, I chose to be around with the wrong people. It wasn't until my freshman year in college that I chose to join a student organization, and that choice has changed my life for the best. My biggest success yet came when I was president of the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) at Montclair State University (MSU). I was awarded three leadership awards, created the 1st Latino Leadership Conference at MSU, and LASO won "The best Organization of the year" award under my presidency.


Even though I did all of these great things, my most rewarding experience in LASO was inspiring and guiding other college students to become successful leaders for LASO. I realized more young individuals need my inspiration. On October 23, 2014, I  formed a team of college student leaders to inspire the youth along my side. On this date, Inspimind was born

Lynn Regan Aug 03, 2017
CFC Loud n Clear Foundation
After many IOPs, several in-patient treatment centers, and years of an uphill battle with addiction, we discovered the gaps in the system and realized a need for diverse programs of extended aftercare.  When Daniel Regan left the safety of his rehabilitation center, he developed a recovery system for himself with the help of his mother, Lynn Regan.  After a while people started to want to know how they did it and wanted a recovery plan set up for themselves. They decided from that point that everyone deserves access to an aftercare program and they created CFC Loud N Clear Foundation. CFC, which stands for Coming Full Circle, provides services for Prevention, Intervention, and Recovery with a seamless integration of the three making it a full circle. We are proudly more than just a recovery program.
Today, Daniel is celebrating his 6th year in Recovery this March. He is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Social Work and has become a CCMI Certified Case Management & Interventionist through A&E's Ken Seeley's Intervention Program. He has been honored by the Mental Health Association, NJ State Senate, & multiple law enforcement agencies for his excellence in addiction services. Daniel has been highlighted on Crime Watchers, Chasing News, Fox 5, and Jersey Matters and is a regular guest on NJ101.5, 98.5 the night & 95.9 the Wratt. He currently serves as a peer recovery coach and mentor to over 200 members of CFC Loud N Clear Foundation. In 2012, Daniel brought the concepts of his West Coast treatment center to the East by launching SMART Recovery in New Jersey. Daniel believes in many roads to recovery and his work has changed many lives. He is a devoted community leader bringing R.I.S.E. a program meant to create symmetry, volunteerism, accountability, and solutions for communities. In 2016 it will launch across NJ building Recovery Ready Communities.
For over 25 years, Lynn Regan owned and managed multiple daycare centers in Bricktown, Manasquan & Point Pleasant NJ. Playing a crucial role in Daniel's road to recovery, Lynn is now the Executive Director of the CFC Loud N Clear Foundation 501c3. She is a CCAR Certified Recovery Coach and Ethics trainer, hosting training for local community members and mental health professionals. In 2015, she served as head of the Howell Township Municipal Alliance Chairperson. Lynn also facilitates the parent sector of the Foundation. Together, they make a fabulous team and have taken New Jersey and now the country by storm!

Kieran Bhatia - NOAA Affiliate Sep 14, 2017
Hurricanes and Global Warming

My name is Kieran Bhatia and I am postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University. I received my PhD in atmospheric sciences at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School. Four years ago, I started an outreach program that focuses on hurricane science and preparedness. I have spoken at almost twenty rotary clubs and a variety of schools. I was wondering if you would be interested in me speaking at your rotary club. A more detailed description of the outreach program I started at University of Miami along with some past talks are listed here:http://hurricanes.rsmas.miami.edu/outreach/ . The last five years have been very active hurricane seasons for the northeast and especially New Jersey. The state received significant damages from both Sandy and Irene. Traditionally, this area has not been frequented by tropical cyclones so public education regarding these natural catastrophes has not been as extensive as other regions. The goal of this talk will be to inform the audience about the more complicated forecast products shown to the general public during a hurricane forecast, discuss impacts associated with hurricanes, and answer any questions posed by the audience. Hopefully, everyone will leave the room as more hurricane savvy citizens that are prepared for the next Hurricane Sandy. Of course, much of the information that I would be presenting is already available on the internet. The value of this lecture series is derived from its ability to convey information in a more accessible form. I have experience presenting these unique hurricane lectures in an interesting, approachable way that makes learning this critical knowledge exciting and easy. Please feel free to send any questions and I look forward to scheduling a talk. I am flexible with the exact meteorology topic as well- I can cater it to your club's interest (more climate/sea level rise is doable).
