What she does: I am currently the Director of Development at Hartford’s Camp Courant, the largest and oldest free summer day camp in the country.  Prior to coming to Camp Courant in January 2013, I spent four years as Development Officer-Private Grants for Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity.  In my new role, I provide strategic leadership in the development of philanthropic relationships throughout greater Hartford in support of Camp Courant’s programmatic priorities.  I work closely with the Board of Directors, local foundations, businesses and individual funders to identify and grow the resources to support Camp Courant’s programs and organizational development in order to provide the best summer experience possible to Hartford’s youth.

I received my BA in History from the University of Pittsburgh, and have completed all of my classes for my MA in Public History from CCSU.

Future Aspirations: Own a vineyard.

My favorite thing about HYPE: I love meeting and connecting with new people.  HYPE is an ever growing organization, and every time I attend an event, I always meet a new person.
