As a Fundraising Specialist at the Foundation, I work to ensure our programs have the requisite resources to sustain and grow their remarkable impact. I particularly enjoy sharing stories with our donors, illustrating how their generosity positively changed an individual’s life.

I began my professional career at Eastern Michigan University, where I taught in the communication department and coached the university’s speech and debate program. Before joining the foundation, I served as the Director of Development for Waukegan to College, where I raised funds to help first-generation, low-income students to realize their dream of earning a college degree. I’m happy to continue working to help individuals unlock a higher quality of life through education at The Actuarial Foundation.

Outside work, I enjoy running, collecting records and vintage audio equipment, and spending time with my wife, our daughters, and our dog, Sally.

I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Communication Studies and Rhetoric from Eastern Michigan University.
