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 in Georgia - a slower pace of living, great food, and friendly people.
