AFPNEO Chair, Scholarship Committee; Member, Professional Development Committee
VP of Development, The Village of St. Edward
What made you decide to join AFPNEO? Since I first became a development professional, AFPNEO has been an integral part of my professional development. I'm happy to support and help guide this beneficial organization!
Favorite part of working in fundraising? Helping people fulfill their philanthropic dreams!
Favorite experience with AFPNEO so far? Networking with other fundraisers is the best. I've made wonderful friends and have colleagues in every sector who are always willing to offer their support, advice, or encouragement.
If you could give your younger self any advice about the fundraising profession, what would it be? Be the very best you that you can be. Keep learning, keep trying, and the rest will fall into place.
What are your hobbies outside of work and fundraising? Quilting, needlework, bicycling, and camping.
Any other information you would like to share? I was almost fifty when I entered the profession. Fundraising is the best, most rewarding job, and one I never knew I wanted! I'm so glad we finally 'met!'
