Associate Director of Philanthropy Operations
The Trust for Public Land
Q. How long have you been an Apra-MN member and what was your first Apra experience?
A. Ooh boy....I think I went to my first Apra MN event in 2009, and it was a session about identifying planned giving prospects.
Q. What do you enjoy most about Apra-MN?
A. The support and camaraderie. This is a group that will share any resource, answer any question, and help with any project if you just ask.
Q. What do you like most about your career?
A. I've always loved the puzzle of prospect management. You have a pool of prospects, and a group of relationship managers, and I get to figure out how to get all the right prospects into the right portfolios at the right time, keeping things balanced and equitable.
Q. Best piece of advice you've received?
A. You have to speak up for what you need and want. You're your own best advocate.
