Attended KSU & graduated with a degree in Social Sciences and a minor in Hospitality Management. I spent two years organizing events and fundraisers at Head for the Cure, a non profit for brain cancer. I then went on to work for DMI, an event management company where I was dedicated to the Sprint team to plan B2B and customer events. I will be coming from United Way of Kansas City. I started as an event and campaign manager and was promoted to the Director of Donor Events & Engagement last September where I have been handling the strategic annual donor plan. I am the oldest of 7 siblings and have a passion for events + non profits + social justice. I spend my free time volunteering at Operation Breakthrough and CASA. I recently got married and am currently enjoying the “joys” of homeownership. I am thrilled to come work for SACNAS as the Development Manager!
