Supporting the work of nonprofit organizations and their leaders is my passion. My work with nonprofits started at a young age as a volunteer in my rural Iowa home town. In my career I have worked in roles developing programs at a national child care association, a state support organization for Habitat for Humanity, and an association of leaders of volunteers. For the past 15 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with nonprofit organizations across the state of Minnesota delivering training, technical assistance and consulting support in areas ranging from volunteer engagement to financial leadership.

I have a Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Management from Hamline University and an undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my young son and my husband, trying new restaurants, reading fantasy novels, and exploring Minnesota’s natural wonders and roadside attractions.
