What is the biggest trend in the field of family philanthropy?

A Focus on Impact – I’m interested in learning more about how family foundations are truly making an impact in the communities they serve. 

What did you do before NCFP?

Before NCFP, I earned my Master’s in Social Policy because I believe in order to make impactful solutions you must also understand community. For the past several years I have worked with various organizations advocating for issues from retail to education policy to humanitarian relief. Ultimately, my goal is to be a social change agent that gives back and improves conditions for generations to come. 

What do you like most about your job?

I love having the opportunity to be creative and think strategically! I look forwarding to telling more family foundations’ stories and strengthening NCFP’s brand.
