There has not been a dull moment in my 25-year development career. Every client, every project, every experience has enriched me personally and professionally in so many ways. However, my vision has stayed the same: to enable my clients to transform their organisations through philanthropy. Every day I work with people to share the importance of giving and receiving, and to create an environment where both can thrive.

My early experience at Cornell was pivotal. There I learnt why education is such a terrific cause to support – and started to be a donor myself. I’m also grateful to my husband for having chosen to do a PhD there… which was how I found the job in development that turned into a lifelong passion.
