What are you up to these days?
I’m currently working as a finance associate at The Michael J. Fox Foundation in New York City.

How did your time at CEP prepare you for what you’re doing now?
Being at a smaller organization like CEP gave me the opportunity to work on a variety of projects not just related to finance. This allowed me to learn the various aspects of running a nonprofit organization, which increased my passion for the sector and increased my desire to work in the finance department of a major foundation.

What did you do between your time at CEP and your current role?
After leaving CEP, I moved to Ohio to attend graduate school at The Ohio State University. After graduating with my master’s degree in finance in 2014, I accepted a job offer from MJFF.

What do you miss most about working at CEP?
I miss the culture at CEP and cherish the connections and friendships I made while working there.

What advice would you give someone about working at CEP?
Take advantage of being at a small organization by taking opportunities to work cross-departmentally when given the chance.

Describe your perfect Sunday
If the weather is nice, then getting out and exploring my city. If not, then being productive at home and catching up on football or TV.
