Why I Do This Work
The most meaningful role I can play in addressing the immense need and inequity in our world is to connect nonprofit and advocacy organizations with the resources they need to be successful. I’m driven by the opportunity to dig deep in new issue areas, connect with leaders and funders, and help to discern and advance the many small actions that accumulate to long-term impact.
