Industry/Job Title:  Philanthropy/Health Care; Associate Director, Corporate & Foundation Support

What she does: I have been the Associate Director for Corporate & Foundation Support at Hartford Hospital since April 2008.  In this role, I am responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with foundation and corporate partners and researching, preparing, and submitting funding requests to a variety of local, state, and national organizations.  Prior to this position, I was a Project Manager in Research for ProHealth Physicians.  I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2006 with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Care Management and again in 2011 with a Master’s degree in Public Health.

Future Aspirations: I’d like to always be doing something that helps others and inspires me.  Exactly what – who knows!  I am trying to always be open to new opportunities and challenges as they arise.  Usually the best things in life are those you never could have planned.

My dream job would be… Hosting a design show on HGTV!
