• Conceptualizing projects to advance Cornell Botanic Gardens
  • Inspiring and interacting with students
  • Sharing fundraising expertise at professional conferences


I joined Cornell Botanic Gardens as director of development in October 2016. I love working for the gardens; this is the job of my heart! Previously, I was the membership director at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the membership manager at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Prior to the Gardner, I had a long career behind the scenes in museums and history non-profits, serving most recently as the registrar at the Winterthur Museum near Wilmington, Delaware. I have an undergraduate degree in art history from Tufts University and an M.B.A. from the University of Delaware.
