I began my tenure at CAF America in 2015 and now serve as the Vice President of Donor Services at CAF America. Within this role, I oversee the Donor Services department, which consists of both our Corporate Services and Private Donor Services teams. I am grateful for the opportunity to work directly with our clients to bring their philanthropic goals to fruition through strategic and regulatory compliant giving programs. In addition, I provide education to our fund managers and donors on cross-border grantmaking and Donor Advised Fund regulations, as well as represent CAF America at a variety of speaking engagements.
My interest in international development began during my undergraduate coursework, where Dr. Brenda Kauffman (Flagler College) encouraged me to explore my interests through a number of independent research projects, ultimately leading to an internship focused on refugee resettlement programs in the United States and Master’s research on International Humanitarian and Human Rights Law. These experiences laid the foundation for a strong belief in the important role that philanthropy plays in civil society and international development.
I hold an MPhil in International Peace Studies from Trinity College Dublin and a BA in Political Science from Flagler College. In addition, I am a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® (CAP®) and I am certified in Anti-Money Laundering (AML/CFT) by the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Outside of my work at CAF America, I am a voracious reader and lover of the outdoors. I enjoy snowboarding with my husband, watching Formula 1 races, and cooking.
