As a native Midwesterner, I appreciate the beauty of our landscape and the earnest nature of the residents. The majority of my career has been working for non-profit organizations in a wide variety of roles. My education includes a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa and a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I have been part of program staff at the foundation since 2005, and my current role is Senior Program Officer in our Strong and Vibrant Communities impact area. I enjoy speaking with potential applicants and learning about their organization’s priorities and projects to improve their communities.
In my time away from work, I might be found enjoying time with my husband, friends, and pets, or gardening or reading.
