My experience spans higher education, trade associations, nonprofit environments, and private organizations. My specialties include special events fundraising, corporate and foundation relations, grant writing, committee management, board relations, database operations, marketing communications, and public relations. Personally, I am a mom, runner, animal lover, and eco-conscious human.  I’ve run two marathons and recently published my first book, Sweet Sounds of the Night.
