What I love about my work:

Working collaboratively with my team, feeling connected to a deeper mission in a tangible way, and learning North Carolina’s philanthropy landscape.

When not at my desk:

I am taking care of my babies, spending time with family, volunteering, playing tennis, and traveling.

Favorite thing about North Carolina:

The many similarities to my upbringing—a slower pace of living, great food, and friendly people.
