How would you describe your experience as a Wagner student?

Invigorating and challenging, yet welcoming and empowering. 


How did you find your first post-Wagner job?

I couldn't have gotten through the job search process without the encouraging support from Wagner friends near and far. Whether it was circulating job postings via email or hopping on phone calls for a morale booster and support, my Wagner community was there. At the end of the day, it was a coffee date with a west coast Wagner alumna that led me to Indiegogo.


Describe your current job.

As Director of Social Innovation & Design I empower entrepreneurs, creators, and changemakers to fund what matters to them. I'm responsible for building partnerships and empowering individuals to leverage crowdfunding for social good. I head up our sales efforts in the social innovation vertical, speak on behalf of Indiegogo at events, and consult on high impact campaigns on strategy.
