How do I help clients live a richer life?
I advise and educate Brighton Jones clients on how to align their passions with strategic, trust-based philanthropy. I leverage my expertise in the social impact sphere to help our clients articulate their philanthropic vision and engage in impactful relationships with the causes and organizations that inspire them. By creating meaningful connections—between philanthropists and nonprofit leaders, among family members, and within the community—our clients’ philanthropic portfolios can create lasting change.

How do I spend my time outside of Brighton Jones?
My husband and I are raising two smart, funny, and active young kids, and are often found making art, music, and food together in our home just outside of Boston. True to my Pacific Northwest roots I have a great love of the outdoors, single origin coffee, and that new edgy restaurant on the corner. I also serve on the Board of Directors of Bean Voyage, a feminist social enterprise working to eradicate the gender gap in coffee-farming communities in Central America.
