About Me

I became the Executive Director of the Cobb Collaborative in September 2018 after serving as the organization’s Resource Manager. I'm passionate about our collective impact work to improve outcomes for children and families in Cobb County. The Cobb Collaborative is the local presence for the Georgia Family Connection Partnership and we focus our work in three areas: reading proficiency, mental health and civic engagement. While I'm not an IT expert by any means, I appreciate the power of technology to amplify the work of nonprofits and their stakeholders. More than ever, nonprofits must meet donors, volunteers and even clients where they are - and oftentimes, that is online.
