There is a perfect saying in the theatre world, ‘There are no small parts, only small actors’ that encapsulates my philosophy – every job matters and every person behind it should be supported.”

Senior Grant Writer
“I’m so lucky to be able to use my writing skills to improve society and help great organizations achieve their goals. One of my favorite sayings in fundraising is, ‘It’s not about the money; it’s about the cause.’ I try to keep that perspective at the forefront every time I craft a proposal so that every project strengthens the organization’s image, brand, and overall strength.”
