Welcome, curious observer!
I am a young international affairs and development professional currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA member with Northern Illinois Food Bank, the fifth largest food bank in Feeding America's network. I develop resources for the food bank through chamber and tabling events, meetings with corporations, grant writing and presentations about hunger to community groups.
Before I began my year of service, I had varied experience in agency, media, nonprofit, foundation and private settings working on everything from fundraising to partnership management and communications strategy. I bring excellent writing, communications, research and development expertise that will allow you to connect with your base in a meaningful, strategic and powerful way.
My portfolio shares more in depth how these experiences have built my career as an innovator in development and partnerships, from a grassroots to an international level.
