Mission-driven nonprofit professional with a passion for global women's issues and running marathons.






Associate Director

As Associate Director, I manage a portfolio of diverse, national non-profit clients in areas including education, public policy, and human rights to advise them in building institutional giving programs. On each client team, I manage Grant Writing and Project staff in drafting proposals, researching prospects, and developing grant calendars.

Elevate builds smart, sustainable grant programs that help nonprofits grow. As Senior Grant Writing Associate, I work with nonprofit clients to write effective grants, improve program outcomes, and focus on long-term strategic growth through institutional funding.


Grants Specialist

The USO strengthens America's military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

At the USO, supporting the troops is more than just a phrase. I do it every single day by writing grants and proposals that deliver programs and services that keep our military connected.


M.S., Global Affairs

My graduate thesis, "Women AND Girls: Promoting Peacebuilding among Girls in Conflict - A Case Study Analysis of Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda" looks at the implementation of humanitarian aid programs for women in conflict-affected countries and how they often exclude girls, as future women, from participating, thus perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

Hofstra University

B.A., Political Science

At Hofstra, I had the opportunity to partner with Plan International and travel to Togo and Ghana to work on a child protection initiative focused on labor trafficking in West Africa.
