I am excited to continue my tenure on the Board, as WCNCR continues to develop affinity and club-wide programming and to evolve our partnership with other Wharton and Penn alumni clubs. As we emerge from our virtual year of Covid, I am looking forward to working with Wharton, our Board, and members to reintroduce in-person programming and to have more of our Wharton faculty engage with our local alumni. I’d like to focus the next two years on solidifying succession plans for our affinity programming groups and the board executive team and introducing a career networking portal.

Special Skills, Qualifications & Previous Board Experience

In the summer of 2018, I was honored to be tapped as the founding Vice President of the Wharton Club of the National Capital Region’s Board. Working with a talented and determined team of volunteers, with fabulous 24/7 support from the Wharton School, we launched a fully realized regional club that quickly became the 5th largest Wharton club (by percent alumni participation).

In addition to this role, I am a marketing executive who has held senior marketing roles at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the National Aquarium, Capital One Bank, and American Express. I am also a member of the Cornell University Alumni Association Class Counsel and a recipient of a Sousa Service Award from the Seneca District of Scouts/BSA.
