In Service: The Column of the ADRP President

Executive Director, Donor Relations

Hi there [imagine me giving a little wave and an awkward smile],

Last week I had to wear pants. And nice shoes. For three days in a row!

It was a pretty momentous occasion—both for my wardrobe, and for ADRP—as we gathered together again after a long, pandemic-induced hiatus at the ADRP 19th Annual International Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Can I just say how AWESOME everything turned out? Kudos to conference chair, Ryan Steele, and chair-elect, Margaret Coad, and the entire committee! I came back inspired, excited, exhausted—and 100% ready to take on anything and everything—including serving as ADRP’s next President.

You can read all about me in the profile below. Suffice it to say that with me, what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG for you html geeks). I like to joke. I like to laugh. I talk a lot about my kid (he’s a giant) and my dog (she’s the goodest girl). Sometimes I talk to myself. I am very charming, after all. 

But in all seriousness, when our great-and-wise now past President, Angela Altamore, passed the ADRP leadership baton to me last week, I couldn't have been more excited. ADRP has been a part of my donor relations career for more than 12 years. And over those years new peers became close friends, mentors encouraged me upward, webinar speakers sparked new ideas, board discussions challenged me, conference presentations led to job offers (yes, really!), and so much more.

I am honored to give back to the organization that has given me so much. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. I am looking forward to an amazing year!
