Philanthropy. Community. Connection.

I’m a philanthropy professional based in Chicago, IL, and this is my site for sharing some of what I’m up to with you. I encourage you to contact me with anything that piques your interest.

I work at Candid, a brand I was honored to help create as Foundation Center and GuideStar joined forces. I go to sleep thinking about how to better leverage resources, data, and talent to make scalable change happen. I bring empathy, energy, humor, influence, and a bit of sass to the table as my biggest tools, and derive immense satisfaction from helping people to unlock new mission-driven ideas and solutions.

You can read more about my values and approach to work here.

And I recently started a #WomxnInPhilanthropy crowdsource turned Twitter list. Read more about this initiative and activate your network.
