I work on the training and implementation team at Z2 Systems, makers of the NeonCRM, a comprehensive cloud-based CRM database for nonprofits. I help organizations use NeonCRM efficiently and effectively so that they raise more money, gain more members, sell more event tickets, and ultimately help more people.

In my past life, I was a fundraising professional and grant writer for nonprofits for more than five years. My time in the nonprofit sector made me passionate about many, many things, including helping low-income children and families and using data to improve client outcomes.

On the personal side, I am a proud Logan Square resident, born-and-raised yinzer, and a runner. I am also working on my Master's degree in Public Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago, with a focus on nonprofit-government collaboration.
