I serve alongside the board of directors as a steward of the assets our donors have entrusted to us. I enjoy being able to connect people to the causes they care about most. It is my job to foster awareness and understanding of BACF, promote philanthropy in our community, and participate in and support the work of area leaders and agencies to advance our common goals. I have a master's of public administration degree from Wayne State University. I have spent my entire career in the nonprofit sector, starting at the Saginaw Community Foundation upon graduation. With an academic background in organizational development, much of my career was dedicated to the creation and launch of several nonprofits, including Hidden Harvest, the Mid-Michigan Children's Museum, and the Pulse3 Foundation. Returning to the community foundation field with an established organization such as the Bay Area Community Foundation feels like I am coming home, and home is a great place to be!

Favorite part of my job: Hands down, my favorite part of this job is working with people who care about making the world a better place – our staff, our volunteers, our community partners, and our donors.

Things I can help you with:

  • Accomplishing the charitable goals of you, your family, your business or your clients
  • Establishing a fund at the Foundation
  • Building your unique legacy
  • Answering questions about how BACF can help you
  • Exploring how we can build a vibrant community together

Favorite place in our community to spend free time: Much of my free time is enjoyed on our trail system – walking my dog, hiking, biking – and enjoying locally owned shops and restaurants.

Other things I do in my free time: visiting my three children, day trips exploring our beautiful state, reading, outdoor activities
