During a 30-year career in New York I held senior positions at The Museum of the City of New York (Deputy Director), The Cathedral Museum at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (Director) and The Asia Society (Curator and Development Specialist). As a consultant, I advised a number of organizations on fund-raising programs, pre-campaign planning, and board development: Roosevelt Island (with Kitty Carlisle Hart), the Kitchen, the Jean Cocteau Theatre, Ramapo College and Rockland Center for Arts among others.
After leaving New York, I served as Vice President of Bennington College from 2003 to 2005 where I oversaw the planning, staffing and early implementation of a successful $100 million capital campaign. From 2006 to 2009 I served as Senior Vice President of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA. During this time, I played two roles. In the area of board governance, I was instrumental in doubling the board of trustees to become a national group of exceptional individuals of broad expertise. In the fund-raising sphere, I designed, established and staffed a new Development Department to become capable of initiating a major capital campaign.
Since leaving Kripalu I have worked as a consultant with the North Bennet Street School in Boston and the Wellesley College Museum of Art.
