Excellent organizational and assessment skills, paired with strong writing and a long history of process, procedure and policy development, budgeting, project management. Experienced in government, historic preservation, decorative arts, grant management and grant writing.
Best operational practices in interim directorships, startups, process assessments, governance documents, structural components, and financial systems.
My special training and experience is in historic preservation, American decorative arts, and material culture. With leadership in several of the best and largest American decorative and fine arts collections in the United States, including those held by the Diplomatic Reception Rooms, the Dietrich American Foundation, and the Colonial Dames of America, my affinity for the arts and humanities ranges across both professional and volunteer work.
As well, I have lead operations in grant awarding for foundations and the federal government, instituting best practices in processes and policy development. I enjoy strong success in grant seeking for projects and programs.
