As Community Engagement Manager, I have the pleasure of creating opportunities to engage Point Blue’s membership base and individuals interested in conservation science. My goal within the Advancement Department is to secure support for our climate-smart initiatives and I have enjoyed the ability to blend my personal and professional passions here at Point Blue. 

I grew up in North Carolina and received degrees in Public Relations and Psychology from North Carolina State University. My career and love of event planning began at the North Carolina Museum of Art in the membership department developing events and fundraising opportunities. I continued on to New York City working for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and New York Public Library managing events before relocating to the Bay area. Most recently, I was the Director of Events at Yosemite Conservancy planning weekend trips in Yosemite and cultivation opportunities throughout California.

In my personal time you can find me hiking or paddle-boarding, reading, and traveling as much as possible.
