Why do you do what you do?
My focus is on client success – helping customers to define and implement strategies that drive results and maximize their return on investment. Specifically, I love applying test-and-learn principles to fundraising and engagement programs. I am passionate about gleaning best practices from my experience and sharing that body of knowledge with others.
