Senior Director of Business Development


I am passionate about advancing women's leadership across all platforms. I believe that it is critical to create a pipeline of women as leaders because by harnessing this extremely valuable, under-utilized pool of talent the world will become a more socially conscious and economically vibrant place.

Assistant Director of Development


The White House Project

External Affairs Managers

Working at The White House Project changed my life. During my tenure I worked closely with founder and president Marie C. Wilson. Marie is a powerhouse and having the opportunity to work so closely with her taught me how to: fundraise, make a deal, manage a team, navigate new york city all while staying true to yourself. One of my greatest accomplishments was running the Corporate Council - our largest revenue stream comprised of fifteen very senior women, including: Susan Sobbott (former president OPEN American Express) and Beth Brooke (Global Vice Chair of Public Policy for EY). Additionally I served as secretary to the Board of Directors and managed our annual Gala at the Museum of Natural History.
