As an auto-didact with broad interests ranging from American military history and the modern food industry to women’s empowerment and social justice, you might say that I’ve dabbled here and there. A Tar Heel born and bred, I earned a BA in History and Political Science and MA in Teaching at UNC-Chapel Hill. I was extensively involved with Project Dinah, a student organization dedicated to raising awareness of sexual and interpersonal violence on campus and in the community. And while learning the basics of grassroots activist movements, I was also learning the basics of professional nonprofit development operations as an administrative assistant at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
I landed at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center as their Development & Communications Director. As a one-person team in charge of a small and young development program, I worked quickly to learn the essentials of a wide range of fundraising and communications skills. I dedicated my first five years at the Center to expanding the agency’s fundraising and to creating and streamlining their professional communications. After creating new print materials, launching digital media efforts, and mastering major fundraising events, I turned my attention to grant funding. As Associate Director, I took on end-to-end grant management of the agency’s government and private grants. In this role and then as Executive Director, my primary responsibility for nonprofit management included program development, strategic planning, and agency compliance.
Now with Blue Hill Strategies, I work with a variety of nonprofits and government groups on a range of projects from copyediting reports and writing grants to consulting on event planning and developing strategic plans for expansion.
