Donor Services Manager
I have worked at the ENF for just over seven years.
What projects are you/your department working on right now?
The Donor Services department is gearing up for the end of our fiscal year, which is just around the corner.
What’s your favorite part of working at the ENF?
My favorite part of my work with the ENF by far is speaking with Elks across the country. I love solving problems and speaking with them about what great things they are doing in their communities. I also really enjoy working with the Donor Services team. We work really hard but also enjoy our jobs.
Describe your average day at the ENF.
We say in the DS department that there is no average day, but we do have average weeks. As I mentioned earlier, communicating with Elks is part of that but also processing donations, updating records and reports, responding to requests, assisting the team with questions, and meeting with other departments comprise an average week here for me.
What are you looking forward to this year?
My husband and I purchased a house two years ago and this will be the first summer where we do not have a major fix-it project to do. We built a deck last year and I’m looking forward to spending time outside enjoying it with family and friends—after this currently very difficult and snowy Chicago winter.
What’s one thing about you that might surprise people?
I’ve gone walleye fishing almost 40 summers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I don’t always catch a lot but usually have a great “The one that got away” story for the trip.
What TV show do you never miss?
I am embarrassed to say that I watch too much TV. Two of my favorite programs are Scandal and Parenthood, which are on at the same time!
