I joined The Actuarial Foundation in 2015. As Executive Director, I have worked to expand the Foundation’s reach with new initiatives like the national Modeling the Future Challenge math competition, STEM Stars scholarship program and the award-winning Math Motivators tutoring program. I have also secured innovative funding opportunities for the Foundation through corporations, grants and challenges. Since joining the Foundation, our annual revenue has grown from $1.5M per year to over $4M per year. I am dedicated to continuing to provide vital math and financial literacy to communities all over the United States. Prior to joining the Foundation, I served as Vice President of the JourneyCare Foundation, one of the largest non-profit hospice and palliative care organizations in the Chicagoland area. During my tenure, JourneyCare Foundation’s assets grew from $10M to $14M. I am proud of the successful implementation of several community engagement programs, including The Grateful Family & Friends program which allowed patient families to thank caregivers, the Youth Advisory Board which connected high school students with the mission of JourneyCare, and the Planned Giving Advisory Council which provided educational resources to Foundation staff and donors. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
