I’ve been at Columbia since 2008, as the main fundraiser for the Center for Community Arts Partnerships. Most of my work consists of writing grants to support CCAP’s work – I’ve raised over $15 million so far. I admire Columbia students for pursuing their passion in the arts and media – I could never have done that when I was in college. I also appreciate my colleagues at Columbia for their dedication to the students and the school. It’s my first time working in a large institution and it’s nice to see how much people care. I’ve also been taking classes at Columbia, and it’s great to get a student point of view – we have a lot of great faculty and resources here at the college.
