I started this blog as a way to share my thoughts, ideas, and sometimes struggles, of being a young professional in the nonprofit sector. I’ve been working in nonprofit for over 5 years, starting at an entry level position, finding my passion in marketing & development, and continuing to move forward in what I hope will be a long career in the industry.
I currently work at an environmental nonprofit as the Development and Marketing Coordinator. I feel lucky to say that I love my job and I love using my skills and knowledge to make a difference in my community. I also love connecting with other young professionals, at my previous job I started a Young Professionals Committee for my organization and when I moved to San Diego I joined YNPN San Diego where I’ve already met some amazing people who’ve introduced me to great ideas and discussions that I plan to share on the blog!

I’m also a newlywed and new west coast resident! My husband and I got married in October 2011, and two weeks later got on a plane to move to San Diego from Richmond, VA to shake things up a bit and experience a different side of life. I also applied to graduate school when we got here and will be starting that M.A. Nonprofit Leadership & Management program this fall.
