Job title: Talent Sourcer / Corporate Recruiter
Employed by: Blackbaud
What I like most about my job: Staying connected to the important work that our non-profit clients accomplish each day, while sharing Blackbaud's mission with prospective candidates. As a member of the recruiting team, my job is to think strategically about how to attract the best talent to Blackbaud (most of my time is spent researching competitors and any place talented people are hiding). I focus on hiring in all of our US offices, so love getting to know the talent market in the tech and nonprofit space from coast to coast. As an added bonus, I'm a member of the Blackbaud Employee Fund, which make grants to youth education organizations in the tri-county area. This has been a great outlet for me to learn about the nonprofit impact in the Lowcountry, firsthand.
As Ethics Chair, my goals are to: Keep the conversation going about ethics-related issues. It's an important part of any organization or business so needs to stay top of mind. My second goal is bring attention to some new content. I'd love to hear feedback from Lowcountry AFP members about challenges you've faced, so we can incorporate them into newsletter articles and the October Ethics Event. Send me an email!
I'm originally from: Darien, CT
My hobbies include: Golf, exercising, traveling, art/interior design and volunteering
Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is: Before moving to Charleston in 2015, I lived in Manhattan for five years working for a hedge fund's corporate foundation (focused on grant-making and volunteer engagement) and doing HR/Events for the business. Grant-making and partnering with non-profits is my passion, but HR is what I'm good at! Blackbaud provides a perfect marriage of both. And for something fun: before I moved down south, I spent 2 weeks hiking and camping through Patagonia, having never camped for one night in my life prior to the trip!
If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would: Visit one of the seven wonders of the world and get to know the people who live there.
