Hire me

I was inspired to go into international development after learning about the field as a Congressional Page. I followed this passion with stints in China, Mexico, and Kenya, and at the World Bank as a fraud and corruption investigator for Latin America's portfolio of Bank projects.

I am passionate about building community and voluntarism. I volunteer through many organizations including the Junior League of Washington. I serve on non-profit boards including a new bilingual Montessori school with an emphasis on charity and stewardship in the Catholic tradition located in my neighborhood.

Originally from the Buffalo-Niagara region in New York, I am a first-generation college graduate now residing with my husband, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, in the Navy Yard/Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC. I greatly enjoy baseball and hockey, and love to hike, backpack, and rock climb -- and have done so in over six countries and 11 U.S. States.
