I have 10 years experience in administrative and financial operations, most recently serving as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer for a launching real estate brokerage. I am looking to return to the world of grants management, where my organizational skills and passion collide.

Keller Williams Gateway

Market Center Administrator

I left the field of grants management to serve as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Keller Williams Gateway. This role has allowed me to strengthen my systems implementation, financial analysis and leadership skills. Helping KW Gateway to grow has been an amazing experience, but I realize more than ever that my passion lies with grants management.

University of Maryland, Baltimore

Program Manager

I officially became employed by UMB with my promotion to Office Manager of the Center for Vaccine Development in 2012. In addition to department operations, I gained both pre-award and post-award grants management and financial experience. I was promoted to Program Manager in 2014.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Program Coordinator

At last I found my right fit within the Malaria Group of the University of Maryland School of Medicine's Center for Vaccine Development. Starting as an Administrative Assistant and getting promoted to Program Coordinator in 2010, my love of grants management began. (During this time, I was an affiliate employee of UMB, funded and employed by HHMI.)

Finding My Way

During this period of exploration, I briefly held the following positions: Member Service Representative, St. Joseph Medical Center Federal Credit Union; Claims Service Adjuster, Allstate Insurance Company; and Donor Specialist, St. Agnes Foundation.

Strayer University

M.B.A., Business Administration

With the eventual goal of founding and leading my own organization, I enrolled in the MBA program. What I discovered is that running a non-profit organization is very similar to operating a for-profit company. The main differences include the purpose of existence and tax and liability considerations. Upon graduation, I received the SU Honors Medal.

M.A., Nonprofit Management
