I have a strong passion for the nonprofit community and have devoted much of my time over the past few years learning about how the nonprofit community is managed. I have strong leadership and project management skills that have lead me to lead in various positions. My favorite work environments include organizations that have a strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, and community benefit.
