A motivated, energetic and accomplished non-profit professional with extensive international travel and experience across a variety of roles including: fundraising, stewardship of major and corporate donors, public speaking, organizing, research, networking, writing, social media outreach/strategy, and advocacy. I am driven by a desire to make a difference in the world by using my overseas and extreme circumstance experience, along with my proven ability to efficiently manage resources.
I have spent a great deal of time living and traveling throughout the Middle East since 2007; living in Cairo, Egypt, for five months (Aug 2007-Dec 2007), and the Gaza Strip, for three months (June 2011-Sept 2011). This has enhanced my ability to work effectively in challenging environments and increased my cultural understanding of the Middle East.
