Job title: Director of Major Gifts
Employed by: Roper St. Francis Foundation
What I like most about my job: I live for that perfect moment when you can visibly see the joy and pride a donor feels about the impact of their philanthropic investment. I’m also continuously inspired by the gratitude of patients and families for Roper St. Francis and our physicians and teammates.
As Be the Cause Campaign Chair, my goals are to: Enhance awareness and understanding of the importance of donations to the AFP Foundation, increase our chapter’s participation in the BE the CAUSE Campaign, and, ultimately, help our chapter achieve its goals through the generous donations of our members.
What I enjoy about serving on the board: The opportunity to connect with more fundraising professionals and learn from my fellow board members.
I joined the Lowcountry Chapter of AFP because: It is the go-to place for growing as a fundraiser and developing a supportive network of like-minded talented colleagues.
I'm originally from: Ohio, though I’ve been in Charleston since I was 14.
My hobbies include: Currently, my number one hobby is planning my wedding! But I also love to read, walk Hampton Park with my fiancé and our dog, Madison, spend time with family, watch movies, and peruse interior design blogs.
Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is: My first job out of college was working with an arts-education nonprofit in Baltimore, MD.
If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would: Travel!
