What did you do before working at Make-A-Wish Georgia?
Grant writing is my second career, which I began at the American Heart Association prior to arriving at Make-A-Wish Georgia. My first career was in higher education, as a professor of English (with specialization in African American literature) and American Studies.
What's your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is sharing with donors the impact of their giving—through both the number and types of wishes we’re able to grant each year and the heartwarming stories of lives profoundly changed by a wish experience.
What would your wish be?
My wish would be to be a freelance travel writer with assignments to visit breathtakingly beautiful destinations across the globe.
