Here’s how I can help
I am here to help your nonprofit apply for funding – particularly those organizations that serve youth, women, and girls. I help ensure that your application has all the information necessary for our board of trustees and volunteers to make informed grant decisions. I can connect you with other nonprofits and community partners who have similar goals as your organization. And I can provide answers to questions regarding the community foundation's website, social media, or e-communications.

What is the best part about your job? 
I love working for an organization that connects the generosity of local donors to community need and working towards an equitable tomorrow for the residents of my hometown. 

What music are you streaming?
It honestly depends on the day or my mood when I wake up. I am currently loving neo-soul and 90s hip hop. 

Favorite book or current read? 
The Harry Potter series is hands down my favorite book series. I was the kid standing in line outside the bookstore early morning with mom patiently waiting for them to open their doors to get the newly released book. #teamgryffindor. If I had to choose one out of the seven as a "favorite" I'd say "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."
