Senior Philanthropic Advisor
Why do you do what you do? What drew you to the foundation?

I’m a Bay Area native, and I love the impact the foundation is making here — it’s truly making the Bay Area a better place to live, work, and thrive. I’m also a huge fan of the community foundation model (this is the second one I’ve worked for), and I’m happy to be working with our donor community, inviting and encouraging them to co-invest with the foundation.

How would you describe your role?

I work closely with a portfolio of donor advisors, helping them with their charitable giving goals. We highlight our amazing nonprofit partners through donor engagement events like neighborhood walking tours and peer learning sessions. I love to connect donors with emerging needs in the Bay Area.

Are you involved in any volunteer activities?

As the daughter and wife of immigrants, I am proud to volunteer with the Irish Immigration Pastoral Center.
