My journey as a fundraiser began in my mother’s nonprofit theatre company, where I learned firsthand what it takes to transform a mission statement into community impact. After moving to New York City, I earned my Masters in Arts Management with a focus in Development. In my first class, I knew that I wanted to be a fundraiser to help nonprofits secure the resources they need to fulfill and enhance their mission. This has led me to a path of fundraising roles in a variety of organizations that make the arts, health care, shelter, food, education, and employment accessible to tens of thousands of people each year.
At The Ostara Group, my passion in fundraising continues as I help nonprofits like you identify, cultivate, and obtain vital funds to support your mission. My approach is to build a fundraising and grant writing plan that is founded on the organization’s history, mission, and future vision. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of prospect research, the cultivation of relationships, and crafting a compelling narrative that sparks passion and truly reflects the organization. It is a joy to continue this work in my new community in the PNW.
