WHAT I DO

  • I have been a member of the RDG Team for over 15 years and a co-owner of the firm for half of that time.

BEFORE I JOINED RDG, I …

  • Worked in Georgia Southern University’s Office of University Advancement as the Director of Major Gifts where I managed donors and solicited prospects for the College of Business, College of Science and Technology, and the College of Graduate Studies.
  • Led the entire fundraising operation as Director of Development at Armstrong Atlantic State University, where my proudest accomplishment was launching the University’s first private sector focused community fundraising campaign.
  • Had my first stint with Resource Development Group. I liked it so much, I came back later!
  • Got my start at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce as a project manager where I assisted RDG with the Forward Atlanta funding campaign.
