What I like most about my job: I love everything about my job from the planning and execution of programs and events to strategizing on how to improve the efficiency of processes. What can I say, I love a good plan, and I love even more watching it come to fruition.
My goals for National Philanthropy Day this year are to: Have a speaker that “wows” the audience and make our award winners feel like they won the lottery.
I'm originally from: Reston, VA (just outside of Washington, DC)
My hobbies include: I am a mom of two young children, I didn’t have time for hobbies!
Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is: I love country music!
If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would: Tough one-I am going to need three weeks. Week 1: My husband and I would take my our children to Disney World. Week 2: Sit on Sullivan’s with my toes in the water reading books (I don’t know when I last read a book cover to cover) Week 3: Cleaning and reorganizing my house, uninterrupted.
