Prior to returning home to Buffalo, I lived and worked in Syracuse, NYC, Washington, DC, and Portland, OR. I started my career doing public relations, advertising and marketing for national nonprofits and foundations and joined Say Yes as its first communications director. Since joining Say Yes I’ve had the opportunity to work within many of our programs and currently manage our scholarship.
