8.2016bI’m a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) with over 15 years of experience in nonprofit resource development and communications. From designing comprehensive development plans to securing seven-figure gifts and grants, I’ve helped health and social service nonprofits expand resources for programs, annual operating support, capital campaigns, and endowments.

As a Ph.D. student at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University, I study the political, economic, social, and cultural factors of philanthropy in modern and historical contexts.

My research interests include framing strategies used in social movement organizations and the influence of social identity on donor and fundraiser behavior. I use a variety of methods including behavioral experiments, semi-structured interviews, case studies, content analysis, and surveys.
