Vice President of Development
Here’s how I can help
I help you meet your philanthropic goals by connecting your generosity with community need. I enjoy educating donors and nonprofit organizations on the power of endowment. And facilitating planned giving to ensure your philanthropic legacy.

Community leadership roles?
Secretary – Whaley Children’s Center Board of Directors (+ Governance committee); Lake Fenton Community Schools Board of Education; and Council of Michigan Foundations Government and Public Policy Committee.
What is the best part of your job?
I absolutely love the days we’ve helped a donor meet their philanthropic goals and meet community needs at the same time. Development is an incredible space to work in because we get the privilege of building relationships with many of the amazing people who make our community such a special place to live.
For many years anything related to horses and yoga have been my go-to hobbies for relaxation and bonding time with my daughter. Recently I’ve taken up golf as a hobby and I certainly have respect for anyone who has a consistent game.
Favorite food or family food tradition?
Food could very well be considered a hobby for me as well. I’m always up for a new food adventure, but my favorite would have to be South Asian cuisine. The flavors are unparalleled.
