I joined the VSA fundraising team in October 2019 after a background in the arts and tertiary education sectors in the US and New Zealand. I am responsible for direct mailings, regular giving and bequests. I am excited to help facilitate support from the VSA community and communicate the importance of how donating impacts on the wider VSA community. I’m grateful for the opportunity to bring my experience to VSA.

I started my overseas journey six and a half years ago after meeting friends in Australia and doing what few Americans have done in the past – leave on a working holiday visa. Wellington has been home for nearly four years after spending a year and a half in the South Island in Queenstown and Christchurch.
