What’s the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is helping the membership. I’m also excited to be connected to what is happening in our community. I love that my job will allow me to see firsthand how our members are changing our region and making it a better place.


When did you start work at GWP?

 February 26, 2018


Career background/education?

I have a BA in Technical Theater/Set Design from Point Park University. After graduating, I spent my time designing for Prime Stage Theater and the Playhouse of Point Park University while also working as the production manager for an event florist.  I then moved into the non-profit corporate world and for 14 years was the Event Coordinator for the The Rand Corporation, Pittsburgh Office.


What do you love about where you live?

I love city living because I can access all of the great museums, restaurants and parks in a matter of minutes.


What do you do outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and friends.  I enjoy taking my kids to the library, the park and the museums. We are often found at the many pop-up artist markets around the city.  I am a member and also volunteer with Meeting Professionals International and serve on their board as the VP of Education.  


Favorite brand or flavor of ice cream?

When my family vacations at the beach in Delaware, we go to Kohr’s Bros and get our fill of custard almost every day we are there!  I love orange & vanilla twist!
