Workplace Donor Relations Manager
I am the Workplace Donor Relations Manager and have been on the team of United Way of Northwest Vermont since October 31, 2016. In my role, I have the privilege of working with businesses and their employees on understanding the needs of the community, connecting them to what they are passionate about, and developing meaningful workplace campaigns to continue the impact of United Way. I truly love the ability to talk with CEOs, executives, and employees about all of the work that we do and answer their questions.
I came to United Way after more than 10 years at the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, where I managed the Leadership Development and Workforce Education programs such as Leadership Champlain. Before that, I was the Development Director at the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Membership Development and Events Manager at the Home Builders and Remodelers Association. My vast experience has given me the ability to build the relationships necessary to help businesses understand the work of United Way.
I completed a Certificate in Human Relations and Organization Development from Champlain College in December of 2020 and graduated with my B.A. in Business Administration in the summer of 2021. A lifetime goal that I was able to complete as an adult student.
I truly enjoy traveling, playing the guitar, knitting, and spending time with my blended family and my partner, Greg. I am currently on the board of Destination Imagination, the State Rehabilitation Council, the Franklin County Regional Chamber of Commerce, Sail Beyond Cancer, and the Wheels for Jacquie Foundation, and try to engage as much as possible in my local community of Grand Isle. I am continuously dedicated to instilling the importance of community engagement with those around me.
