What do you do at NCFP?
I head NCFP’s programming activities and serve as our lead knowledge curator and creator of content for philanthropic families. I connect families looking for others to talk with who have walked down similar paths. I also design and host our monthly Family Philanthropy Webinar series, and edit the Family Giving News e-newsletter and the Passages Issue Brief series.
What did you do before NCFP?
This is my second go round with NCFP, which gives you a sense for how much I enjoy this work! Prior to my current term with NCFP, I served on the staff of the Melville Charitable Trust as the founding director for Funders Together to End Homelessness, the nation’s first affinity group focused on ending homelessness. I have also previously held positions working with families at The Philanthropic Initiative in Boston and the Council on Foundations in Washington, DC. I have authored or edited more than 60 publications and reports on family philanthropy and related topics, have a master’s degree in economics from Tulane University and a bachelor’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis. I grew up on a dirt road in Maine.
