For more than 25 years, I have been a passionate leader in fundraising for higher education. I've been at Widener University since 2018 and lead a team comprised of approximately 40 Development, Alumni Engagement and University Relations professionals. Our team is dedicated to strengthening relationships with alumni, raising funds to advance the university's mission and vision, and communicating Widener's commitment to excellence through its marketing and its internal and external storytelling channels.
My previous fundraising roles were with Villanova University, La Salle University (my alma mater) and Saint Joseph's University. I am a frequent conference speaker on higher education, fundraising and advancement topics. A native of Delaware County and lifelong Philadelphia-area resident, I'm a loyal fan of the Phillies, Eagles and "Big Five" college basketball.
