Grants Manager


At PAWS since:
2007 as a volunteer; 2010 as a staff member.
Pets at home:

Reggie the lovable, sensitive, stubborn, slobbery, 11-year-old pit bull, adopted from PAWS in 2008.

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Witnessing my coworkers’ everyday acts of compassion, finding the words to tell the story of their incredible impact, and turning that story into support that helps them do more of what they do best.

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

Happening upon adventures with friends in Fishtown, reconnecting with my New Jersey roots, balancing produce on my dog's head (phillypaws.org/VeggiesOnReggie: it's a thing), trying to do yoga poses without falling, planning travels, salvaging, listening to the same favorite albums over and over, and taking long walks at a slow-motion pace (Reggie's preference).
