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 as a member of the Board of Directors of the Irvington Development Organization (IDO), chair of IDO's Fundraising Committee, and member of the Advisory Board of the Ransburg YMCA.
I am also an avid swimmer. A 1997 NCAA Division 3 All-American and 2020 Athletics Hall-of-Fame Inductee 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.
