I moved to Nebraska in 2017 to join Peter Kiewit Foundation as Grants Manager. I oversee the foundation’s grant policies, processes, and practices. Additionally, I work closely with program, finance, and communication staff to ensure effective monitoring and tracking of grants from initial inquiry to grant completion. Prior to joining the foundation, I served as Grants Management Associate at Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust in Phoenix, Arizona.
I hold a Bachelor of Music degree from the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts at Arizona State University and have 14 years of experience working in the social sector. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing with and training Gage, my black Labrador Retriever puppy, playing piano, singing, listening to live music of all genres, and spending time in the great outdoors.
