Tell us about your family (fur babies count!) "I have two kitties, Gizmo and Dagny (pictured below), and a delightful husband."

Where do you live? "New Brighton, Minnesota."

What do you like to do for fun? "I knit and cosplay and do any craft you can think of. I enjoy being creative - it's how I recharge!"

What’s a life achievement you are particularly proud of? "I was in a program called Destination Imagination (hear do Odyssey of the Mind? Yeah, basically that) and my team took first place at Global Finals twice. We competed against over 80 teams from over 18 countries. That's pretty awesome, if I do say so myself."

What’s one memory that always makes you smile? "When my mom picked me up from my abroad program in Germany and brought me home to a bunch of my friends for a surprise welcome home party! There was an ice cream cake and she even went to go get all my photos developed at the one hour shop so I could share all my stories right away!"

What is one interesting fact about yourself most people don't know?
"I have a secret desire to make a living recording audio books. I don't know... is that interesting?" (we think so!)

Tell us about your organization: "Children's Cancer Research Fund is an organization that provides funding for doctors to create and investigate leading edge treatments to help prevent childhood cancer. We also have quality of life programs for patient and their families that we support."

What’s a typical day like for you? "I'm an early start gal. I get in, I work through imports, data clean up, event prep and reconciliation, reporting... It's a fun mix bag for me."

What’s the best part of your job? "The variety. I love to have puzzles to solve, and data clean up is just like a big box of puzzles."
What advice would you give someone starting out in the non-profit field? "Be flexible and patient. We're a different culture than the for profit world, but I think we're a lot more fun."

What do you love about the Blackbaud Community? "Connection with other BB lovers!"
Finally.. if you were a sandwich, what kind of sandwich would you be? "Fried egg sandwich, hands down. That gooey yolk and toasty bread... It's basically perfect."
