I started working in development in December of 2017, shortly after I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I was a development associate doing all gift processing and gift acknowledgement, as well as assisting the rest of the development staff with their projects.
I have transitioned from that role into the role of grants manager. I manage all grants, pledges, and major gifts systems and reporting for my organization, as well as prospect management.
Outside of work I am an avid musician, with my degree being in music performance. I help teach a high school marching band and play in community orchestras and in musicals. I also volunteer as an assistant Scout Master at my local BSA troop, where I am an alumnus and Eagle Scout. I spend many weekends backpacking, canoeing, and helping with Eagle Scout projects
