Community Connections

Over the last two decades I have engaged with a broad variety of people and institutions across Rhode Island in a number of different capacities.  I have had the privilege of serving on a number of nonprofit boards of varying missions and sizes, and feel that I have been able to add value to their organizations.  In addition, my work with several Chambers of Commerce has also given me insights and exposure into that segment of the community.

This broad knowledge enables me to assist my clients in developing relationships and opportunities that will be beneficial to all parties, and to help them to weave themselves into the fabric of Rhode Island.  My experience managing the Rhode Island Community Relations function at Fidelity Investments can also inform community engagement strategies for corporations and for individuals.

I would be happy to talk through ideas and questions with you over coffee or lunch.

Below you will find a listing of some of my community activities.
