Most recently I directed the office of grants and sponsored programs at Colby College where I focused on research administration, faculty services, and campus initiatives involving federal agencies and foundations. Previously, l had similar roles at Brown and Princeton, and worked at Stanford in the School of Engineering managing a portfolio of funding partnerships for research projects and new ventures.

Earlier in my career, I was director of foundation relations at the United Nations Foundation in Washington, D.C., where we focused on women’s and children’s health, energy and the environment, and campaigns for the eradication of polio and malaria. My background also includes working in the Silicon Valley at Hewlett Packard as a product marketing manager. Prior to Hewlett Packard, I worked in foreign trade with agricultural and consumer products businesses worldwide.
Fun Facts: I love playing golf and making paella and I’ve had a great time hiking with family and friends in Maine.
