I join C2AE as a Business Development Manager, bringing with me a background and experience in healthcare philanthropy, association management, finance, and sales.
Since my graduation from Mount Mercy College, I have held a variety of community relations, political, sales, and health care foundation positions throughout the Midwest. I moved to Michigan from Wyoming in 2008, when I took on the Development Director role for Sparrow Foundation where I managed major gift portfolios and fund raising efforts.
I have received several professional honors and awards throughout my career. Last year I was named as one of the "10 Over the Next 10" award winners from the Lansing Chamber of Commerce. Other awards and honors I have received in the past 10 years include "Top 40 under 40 in Wyoming Who Made a Difference"; "Outstanding Business Woman and Leadership Award"; "Entrepreneur of the Year Award"; "Outstanding Community Service Award"; and "Leadership Excellence Award".
I am an active volunteer for numerous non profit organizations in the Lansing community. I serve on the Board of Directors for several organizations including the Rotary Club of Lansing Foundation, the MSU Alumni Club of Mid-Michigan, and the YMCA. I am also a member of the Rotary Club of Lansing, and the Junior League of Lansing. I also currently serve as the Executive Director of the Wyoming Nurses Association in Gillette, WY, which I maintain via a virtual office environment.
