Here at Executive Elements, we like to introduce you to fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting people who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.
My Current Job/Company:
Director of Mission Advancement, Catholic Social Services
10/31/70 (Halloween baby!)
I oversee our fundraising and marketing initiatives, raising money for the social service programs we provide to the community and throughout our 23 county diocese (focusing on poverty reduction and self-sufficiency).
My family, relationships with my close friends and the impact we are making through the programs Catholic Social Services provides.
Vince (husband and creative mastermind), Jack (17, future filmmaker), Anna (14, future musical theatre star).
My Hero or Heroes:
My two mentors: Laurel, my first boss, who saw potential in me and gave me my first opportunities in the social work field and Joann, my graduate school advisor, who pushed me academically to a place I never thought I could achieve.
Somewhere warm, where there is no schedule I need to adhere to and fruity drinks are readily available.
My Pet Peeve:
Lack of integrity and showing disrespect.
Educated at a women’s college.
Open to any possibilities.
My Favorite Quote:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead)
