As a Fundraising Executive, I have almost 20 years of experience overseeing the development and expansion of regional programs, working to conceptualize and execute long-term fundraising and donor retention strategies. In my current role as Director of Development with the Feliciano School of Business at Montclair State University, I serve as a member of the Dean's senior leadership team, engaging alumni and friends to build private philanthropic support for high priority programs and scholarships. In my most recent role as Vice President with the Greater Twin Cities United Way, I implemented over $30 million in fundraising programs which impacted more than one million at-risk individuals throughout the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metropolitan region. Over the course of my career, I have proven adept at recruiting and supervising teams of fundraising professionals and volunteers, expanding community awareness to deepen partner engagement.
