A bit about me
I am a nonprofit professional sharing my expertise and passion to create solutions, forge partnerships, and grow new ideas for a better world in the public or private sectors.
After graduating from Kent State University in 2010 with a degree in Political Science, I became a program manager, and later, the leader of a nonprofit organization where I've spent the last decade working to support regenerative agriculture, conserve natural and cultural resources, support farmers, expand food access to low-income families, and assist the National Park in a one-of-a-kind farmland preservation program.
Before that, I operated a small farm where I practiced co-existing with the earth and was able to explore, cultivate, and share my passion for growing food.
Why am I making a career shift?
The last decade has been an incredible journey for me. I am humbled and grateful to have spent this time serving a small but mighty nonprofit in northeast Ohio. After ten years I decided it was time for a pause to reflect on what impact I wanted to have in the future and what goals were most important to me.
I built and managed impressive programs and partnerships in my nonprofit tenure and can see these skills easily transferable in many roles. I cultivated strong relationships with my donors and stakeholders, and worked closely with my philanthropic, nonprofit, and government partners. I managed innovative programs and led my talented teams to impactful outcomes.
I'm a creative thinker and writer, which are wonderful attributes to have in any position. Writing and communications played an important role throughout my career. I have a great deal of experience writing and delivering content, copy, grants, reports, presentations, and programs. I regularly presented to private and public groups and worked closely with press and media contacts.
I am interested in using my diverse experience, skills, and passion to serve public or private companies focused the wellbeing of people and planet.
