What do you benefit most from being a member of NCPC?
The greatest benefit of being an NCPC member is being able to build relationships with a network of businesses and nonprofits who work together for the good of the greater San Diego community. By being connected, I can work side by side with nonprofit and business leaders and professionals to improve and enrich mission-based philanthropy and boost philanthropic impact across our community.

What was your company’s biggest accomplishment in the past six months – one year?
My most recent big accomplishment has been having the privilege to work with nonprofits during COVID-19. Recently, one client shared that my knowledge and calming influence helped them face a global pandemic as a mission-focused, strategic organization who survived by staying engaged with our community during these unprecedented times.
