various institutions and cultures to achieve outcomes aligning with
growth and development. Over the years, she’s learned from her
experiences ranging from Peace Corps service, to being an adjunct
Art History professor, to working full time as a volunteer coordinator
(just to name a few), to knowing that empowering leaders and
leveraging the skills and interests of participants results in greater
success in the organization's growth and allows for buy-in and an
increase in interest and participation.

at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) where she
oversees the Chapter of Young Alumni and the Student Alumni

member in her community through engagement with her
neighborhood association board, community organizing work, and
local arts organizations focused on women’s issues and youth
development. She also takes great pride in her leadership in the
Business Volunteers of Maryland’s GIVE Advisory Committee.
