Before working in private philanthropy, I was an adjunct assistant professor and lecturer at distinguished institutions, including Old Dominion University and The Governor’s School for the Arts.
I attended Florida State University before earning an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Kent in Canterbury, England, and a master’s degree from Winthrop University in South Carolina. I also earned my Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP) certification from the American College of Financial Services.
My professional history includes years of service to not-for-profits across several fields, including education, environment, healthcare, and the arts. While standing up VoLo Foundation, a prestigious climate science fund in Florida, I founded Useful Views Philanthropy to help businesses incorporate long-term social and environmental strategies and nonprofit start-ups.
I’m an avid networker in the private philanthropy and not-for-profit sectors, specializing in the creation and implementation of strategic partnerships, program organization, and operational management.
