I’m ecstatic to join Nonprofit Network's team and to have the opportunity to introduce to myself. As a native of Battle Creek, I spent many summers in Jackson visiting my grandparents and have very fond memories of the community.
For most of my professional career, I have devoted my life to social justice and mission-driven work that has a lasting positive impact on vulnerable populations. Collaboration has been essential to my success and I have worked with multi-disciplinary teams to address violence against women, develop strategies to decrease inequities in health, and obtain a federal charter to operate a community development credit union to expand economic opportunities to improve the quality of life for low-income families.
I have an inherent belief that communities are whole and resilient and that the solution to any community problem is in the community. I also believe that when we co-create strategies with the public, we develop tactics that meet their needs and enable real change to occur.
I am affiliated with numerous professional and volunteer networks, giving me the unique experience of serving as both grantee and grantor. This has given me an in-depth perspective on the state of nonprofit organizations—the changing landscape, the struggles they face, and their development needs.
I am married to my best friend, Tim. I have one daughter, two step-children, and four grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching spinning, extreme couponing, and domestic travels.
My desire to be a part of an innovative organization that is forward-thinking, values equity and inclusion, and recognizes the need to partner with the community to bring about change has led me to my new role in Nonprofit Network. As I researched and learned more about the organization, its values and commitment to serving the community, I knew it was a perfect fit as it aligned with my personal goals and values.
I am delighted to add joining this great team to my credentials and look forward to meeting and learning from you.
