Outside of running and coaching, I have spent 10+ years in the non-profit sector focusing on development and major gifts. To be successful in fundraising, one must be successful in relationship building and cultivating donors year round through individual donor cycles. Aside from fundraising, I also worked in hospitality sales for over 4 years and was successful in bringing in new clients to Savannah and to secure multi-year deals that had multi-million dollar impressions on our city through tourism dollars.

I thrive on working with local non-profits to discuss how to best captivate and retain donors, how to network in various markets and how to lead teams effectively. I have also been a keynote speaker on topics such as, leadership skills for middle and high school-aged students, overcoming struggle in life with my “Be the Bean” conversation, and how to collaborate effectively with various organizations. I have also been brought out to organizations to facilitate Ice Breakers during staff and board retreats.

If you are looking to bring an energetic speaker or a fun opening with an ice breakter to your next retreat/meeting or want to bounce a few ideas around, feel free to reach out. I am happy to help.
