Start date with CASA: October 30, 2023
Education and work history: I have been working professionally in the nonprofit world for over twenty-seven years. My favorite thing about working with nonprofits is bringing opportunities to donors to fulfill their philanthropic aspirations, no matter how big or small!
I am a lifelong Lancaster resident and earned my B.S. from Drexel University and in 2013 became a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE). I am a graduate of Leadership Lancaster and currently serve as Co–President of the Susquehanna Valley Council of Charitable Gift Planners.
What is the best part of your job? I am honored to join a dedicated staff, board, and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that children who face the challenges of the court systems have their voice heard. I hope I can bring the stories of these children and the impact that donors and volunteers make to their lives and how we can make a difference one child at a time.
What do you do in your spare time? My husband and I stay busy on our wooded property outside of Millersville gardening and keeping up with the wildlife. We have 2 grown children that we are immensely proud of. Some of my favorite hobbies include modern dance, yoga, kayaking, hiking, and traveling. I am especially proud to be a member of the Grant Street Dance Company, an inter-generational modern dance company located in Lancaster.

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be? Martha Graham
