What do you do at NCFP?

I am the Program Coordinator at NCFP. I facilitate our monthly webinar series, find relevant content for our blog and Knowledge Center, and assist with NCFP’s peer networks and community foundation programming. I work with our Program Team to build new content and curate existing resources for our family philanthropy network.

What did you do before NCFP?

Before NCFP I was the Community Investment Fellow at the Greater Washington Community Foundation and assisted with the grantmaking process for the Fund for Children, Youth and Families, the Community Foundation’s largest discretionary fund focused on academic success, foster care and adoption, and stable housing for the region’s youth and families. I received my master of public policy degree with a focus in nonprofit management from the University of Maryland in 2017.
