I am passionate about what we do here. Working with smart, thoughtful and caring individuals and families to help them make a real and measurable difference in their communities and in the world is a gratifying experience. Helping legal and financial advisors successfully integrate philanthropy into their practices and deepen their relationship with their clients is extraordinarily satisfying. Our work, my work, keeps me on my toes, challenges me and teaches me something new every day.
