Donor Development Relations Specialist

I have been with the Foundation since 2018 in various roles. After graduating from the University of South Florida in 2005, I came to Lake County for a job opportunity working with at-risk youth. Since college, I have always been involved in customer/client relations from working in the public sector as well as other nonprofits. After a stay at home mom gig for 2 years, a career shift landed me in my work with the Foundation. Both my husband and I were born and raised in Florida. We have 2 boys and are a very active family. Most weekends we can be found at a baseball tournament, but we also enjoy fishing and boating.

The best part of my job is all the people I get to engage with. I love finding a connection within our amazing community that wants to be involved in the work that we do. I consider myself lucky to be part of a team that works hard for our teachers and students.
