I am a passionate advocate for low-income people and have been working in hunger-relief since 2000. As Chief External Affairs Officer at Feeding America, I led the organization’s divisions that promoted public education and awareness about the issue of hunger; raised money; and developed and evaluated effective programs. Prior roles included working as the Chief Development Officer and Vice President of Government Relations and Advocacy at Feeding America. I graduated from the University of Dayton (Go Flyers!) and reside in Chicago with my family.
