Director, Fundraising & Marketing Strategies

As a seasoned marketing strategist, I have worked across multiple disciplines in a variety of industries, from home building to theme parks to higher education. This broad range of experiences enables me to uncover hidden resources that when tapped, lead to better outcomes for clients.

 

I champion integrated teams of fundraising and marketing professionals and believe that nonprofit who do not adopt this framework will fall short of their potential. My goal is simple—to create tailored-fit strategies for nonprofit clients using fundraising and marketing strategies that propel them to their next level of success.

I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, an active AFP member, and am All But Dissertation for a doctorate in Leadership Studies.

I have experience in strategic planning across the Detroit Lions philanthropic assets, as well as on the ground experience in being a role model and mentor for youth in all different settings. I have also taken part in creating social media campaigns for social enterprises. I love being an active member of a team and creating meaningful relationships with those I am serving.
