Education, achievement, and service are guiding principles that have inspired my life. Mentorship has also directed me to realize my life by giving what I have learned and experienced to others. These precepts, philosophy, and values have led me to a life of service and learning through philanthropy and voluntarism. I am inspired to express this through instruction and example in the comprehensive fundamentals course Fundraising Fundamentals for Nonprofits. We are fortunate to be part of an institution, program, and curriculum that carry forward this spirit and application for our equally fortunate students who are stewards of our future.
