Gift Planning Associate

I work with supporters who want to make a planned gift to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, helping them make long-term plans that will benefit both their needs and the needs of the Cornell Lab. I enjoy working with others to create a legacy for conservation and nature.

My love of nature started at a young age. I was always discovering new and exciting species in the backyard pond, collecting bugs and admiring the colorful birds that visited the feeder. I have spent my career in development and database management for mission-driven organizations and am excited to use that experience for an organization that I am truly passionate about.

In my free time I enjoy camping, horseback riding and embroidering!
