After 15 years of leading the development office at the Commonwealth School in Boston, I am thrilled to be joining the staff of the Arnold Arboretum. As the Director of Development, my primary role is to cultivate and steward relationships with members, donors, and anyone who wants to have a deeper connection to the collection. Working with director Ned Friedman, my external relations and membership team, public programs, our researchers, librarians, horticulturists, and greenhouse staff, I plan to identify the strategic priorities of the Arboretum and match them with the interests of our community.

A longtime resident of Brookline, I consider it a privilege to come to work every day in this beautiful and vital space that has meant so much to me and my family.

I look forward to getting to know you and, with your help, ensuring that the Arboretum remains at the center of horticultural research as well as a public oasis within the city for centuries to come.
