My work in the nonprofit field began in the business office of an independent school in Idaho. There I learned the daily ins and outs of bill payments and business schedules. Once in Boston I was able to use my psychology degree and money management skills in work with clients challenged by financial exploitation, mental health, traumatic brain injuries, and memory loss due to aging. Working with my varied and dynamic clientele changed my view of community. I saw the difference that direct money management made in preventing homelessness by paying bills, creating budgets, and working with social service agencies to provide holistic support.
During a particularly long winter in Boston, I made the decision to return to North Carolina after many years away. I continue to learn, and expand my community connections as I work with people throughout Durham, Orange, Chatham, Alamance, and counties beyond.
I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities, and am here to answer any questions while making valuable connections.
