Q: What is something interesting about yourself?

A: Rumor has it I’m a great interior designer, listener, and friend. I enjoy actively listening to people and engaging in meaningful conversations –  sometimes too intense :D. I have a calming effect on people and almost always look at things from multiple points of view.

Q: Sounds like you’re a great person to have around! So where might we find you when you have some free time?

A: With family and friends, relaxing, eating, drinking, and traveling, training and playing with my puppy Ruby (a feisty schipperke), listening to The Moth Hour or other great shows on BUR, watching movies, TV and exercising.

Q: Where are some of your favorite places to travel and things to do when you’re traveling?

A: I enjoy shows, museums, shopping, and eating in NYC. I also enjoy skiing, hiking, attending Sundance Film Festival in Deer Valley Utah, cycling, and going to the beach in Falmouth!

Q: Finally, who brought you into SheGives and what do you like best about her?

A: Jackie Segel invited me to join. I love her warmth and her wit!

SheGives connects committed, inquisitive, engaged donors with a slate of diligenced nonprofits in the Greater Boston area. We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving. Giving is personally driven, but because we give side-by-side our collective impact is greater. See a list of the vetted nonprofits selected for our slate here.

WhoIsShe is a regular column featuring an appreciative but sometimes irreverent conversation with a SheGives Member.
