I am the Senior Director for Engagement & Campaign Initiatives at Yale University. In this role, which I assumed in December 2017, I’m responsible for expanding donor and volunteer engagement opportunities with Yale’s alumni and non-alumni friends, building on Yale’s strengths to elevate its engagement with donors and volunteers to foster lifelong connections and a commitment to the university. From 2016-2017 I have served as Senior Director of Development for Annual, Reunion and Leadership Giving at Yale, and from 2006 through August 2016 have served as Managing Director of the Yale Alumni Fund. Prior to joining Yale, I was Development Director at the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and earlier was the Marketing Director at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven. Previously, I had a career in marketing and sales in the hospitality industry, working in various locations on the Eastern Seaboard. I am also a past Chairman of the Annual Giving Directors Consortium, an organization that provides a forum for exploring management, policy and strategic issues of interest to directors of annual giving at 40 higher education institutions in the United States and Canada. I have two adult sons who, as they were growing up, were fortunate to study piano, voice, and drums with wonderful NMS teachers. B. A. from Yale University.
