About me


While a Chicagoan at heart and soul, I'm an international professional dedicated to making a positive impact in the world. It is my mission to always be in a career that brings purpose to my life. ​

For the last eight years, I have worked with the Kennedy Family organization, Best Buddies International, to help create inclusive opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This beautiful work has brought me to over 30 different countries. 

In 2018, I founded a social enterprise. WomenWise provides personal and professional development training to an extensive international network of female professionals. This project has introduced me to hundreds of inspiring and ambitious women.

Through consulting work, I assist tech start-ups to secure external funding for their companies. 

I consider myself to be a lifelong learner, and I am always seeking new areas of expertise. My most recent explorations have been with French, yoga, website design, and gardening.

I'm being transferred to Abu Dhabi for two months to open the Best Buddies regional office.
