A native New Yorker, I have lived in New Mexico, Tennessee, and Virginia, where I have been a business manager, technical writer, and tumbling/gymnastics coach, among other titles. For the last 17 years, I have worked at The VMI Alumni Agencies, Inc. at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). The VMI Alumni Agencies, Inc. consists of The VMI Foundation, The VMI Keydet Club, and The VMI Alumni Association. I have held roles in all three.
I am exceptionally skilled at all aspects of business administration, including program management, customer relations, fundraising, web development, content editing, social media, major event planning, and technical project management. In my current position at The Foundation, I have managed multiple technical projects. In this capacity: I have developed an enhanced interactive website, integrated the interface with the Raisers Edge alumni database thereby optimizing data received, coordinated registration for online events involving tracking statistics and evaluating site analytics, provided financial reporting, and served as Director of Alumni Travel for several alumni international adventure trips when with the Alumni Association.
In addition to my work at VMI, I run my own business consulting company. I help my clients implement solution-based strategies that align with their organization's values via training, branding, social media, and website enhancement while developing growth strategies and optimizing profit.
I hold a BA in Business Administration with an emphasis in communications and marketing from Mary Baldwin College. Showcasing my time management capabilities, I completed my full-time BA studies while also working a full-time job. I’ve completed a certificate in grant writing and management from the University of Richmond in May 2015.
As a former competitive gymnast, I also find time to teach tumbling at Halestone Dance Studio. An avid animal lover, I often volunteer my time and energy to causes for animals, children, and the arts. When I am not working or volunteering, I can be found exercising, spending time with my pets, or traveling.
Currently, I am looking to expand my horizons by seeking an opportunity to put my extensive advancement services experience to use at an amazing organization. If your organization is looking for an employee with my dedication, experience, skills, and drive, please get in touch!
