In addition to my scholarly work, I have extensive professional experience in the for-profit, nonprofit, and government sectors. I have worked for Deloitte, The Urban Institute, the UK Parliament, The Center for Effective Philanthropy, and The George Gund Foundation. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Irvington Development Organization and chair the board's Fundraising Committee.
I am also an avid swimmer. An NCAA Division 3 All-American at Mount Holyoke College, I now swim daily for fun and fitness. I also occasionally compete in masters competitions and open water swims. My proudest swimming moment was competing for the Gezira Sporting Club (Cairo, Egypt) when we won the 2011 Egypt National Masters Swimming Championships.
