Tell us a little about working at the Capital Area Humane Society.
The Capital Area Humane Society’s mission is to fight animal cruelty, help animals in need and advocate for their well-being.  I love working with all of our amazing donors and volunteers who dedicate their time, talent and treasure to the animals at the Capital Area Humane Society. We are so fortunate to have so many dedicated inviduals who rally behind our cause.
How and when did you become a fundraiser? I became a fundraiser 8 years ago. I started out managing volunteers for a non-profit organization in Chicago and quickly learned that I had the skills and personality to become a fundraiser.  I love working with individuals of all different ages who are passionate about philanthropy and creating a legacy in their community.
What do you consider the best part of your AFP membership? I actually have only been an AFP member for about a year (and am now a member of the Marketing Committee), but it has been a great experience. The best part for me has been networking with other fundraising professionals and learning more about the philanthropic community in Columbus.
Do you have a fun fact  that other AFP members wouldn’t know about you? I am married to an identical triplet.
