I was born and raised in St. Paul, MN, and am the youngest of eight. My parents were great role models, teaching my siblings and me the importance of hard work, as well as the value of using our talents in service of others.

I have over 20 years of experience in the nonprofit and philanthropic communities in the Upper Midwest. Prior to becoming a consultant, I worked at the Bush Foundation, a regional foundation working in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 sovereign nations that share geography with those states. During my tenure at the foundation, I was fortunate to work with, advise, learn from and be inspired by accomplished, bright and ambitious individuals who were motivated to create positive change in their career fields and communities.

I live in the Merriam Park neighborhood of St. Paul, MN, with my husband and our three children.
