Greetings! I am excited and honored to join Habitat for Humanity of McLean County as the new Development Director. I thank everyone for your warm welcome and making me feel part of the team immediately. And what a team! From the staff, to the board, to the volunteers – this is an amazing group of dedicated and hard-working folks who believe in what they do and are making a difference in the lives of others.
I come with a background of development and entrepreneurship. At Illinois State University, I spent 16 years in development with public radio station WGLT and created and managed a grant-funded arts program for children for the year prior to GLT. Before joining ISU, I spent 25 years as a small business owner running a retail store, a metalsmith studio, and wholesaling a line of jewelry across the country.
I will draw on these experiences as well as the varied and extensive experience of my co-workers to build on an already successful development program to support many years of future Habitat builds.
My door is always open!
