ON A TYPICAL WORKDAY I’LL BE:

I’m not sure there is a typical workday for the Pat Summitt Foundation which is what makes our days so exciting! One day could consist of meeting with researchers for updates on their work and then traveling across the state for a We Back Pat game, while having a call with a donor about the legacy they hope to leave through the Pat Summitt Foundation. No two days are the same but all have the same focus: to advance Pat’s mission.

I CHOSE THIS WORK BECAUSE:

I chose a career in the nonprofit sector because I wanted to make a positive difference in my community. I particularly love the healthcare setting because you can see the areas of need and the impact as you work to bring change. Getting to work at the Pat Summitt Foundation to carry out the mission of one of the greatest leaders and role models of my time isn’t something I take lightly.

MORE ABOUT ME: 

I was born and raised in Knoxville, and I received my Bachelor of Science in public relations from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Master of Business Administration from the University of Tennessee, Martin. Before joining the Pat Summitt Foundation, I was a development director at the Tennessee Fund at UT Knoxville, and prior to that I worked as a development director at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. My husband Jason and I are the proud parents of 5 awesome children! We spend most of our afternoons and weekends watching them compete in their respective sports.
