After running her own marketing consulting firm, humane society work and a consulting contract cemented her passion for the nonprofit world and working for a cause. As Director of Development for the Hope Center and One Parent Scholar House for the past nine years, she oversees all community relations, events, donor relations, communications and volunteer relations.
