When I'm not working at CCY, I'm working as a fundraiser for Boston University. I oversee student and recent graduate philanthropy, so, those pesky students who call you to ask you to donate? Yeah, I'm overseeing about 100 of them. I apparently don't have enough BU in my day, so I'm also studying to receive my MS in Advertising, and am very excited to graduate in December.

Where are you from and what brought you to Boston?
I'm originally from the part of New York that's "upstate" to anyone below the Bronx and "downstate" to everyone else. The Hudson Valley was a beautiful place to grow up and return to post-college, but I wanted to live in a more manageable city. After some job hunting, I landed in Boston 2.5 years ago and am very glad I did.

Fun fact about you?
I've fallen victim to the adult coloring craze and I'm not the least bit sorry about it!

Latest Yoga breakthrough?
I was recently diagnosed with PTSD and as a result, my practice has transformed. I've built a strong home practice and my traditional vinyasa sun salutations have been traded for supportive restorative postures to aid in my recovery. The breakthrough is realizing that yoga can support me through many different phases of life in ways that I never really imagined possible.

Insiders tip?
I think this is more of a request: Please refer to Tati as "tater Tot" - I'm dying to make this nickname catch on!

What has been the most rewarding aspect of being behind the desk?
This is the best job I've ever had. Tati and David are wonderful to work for, and my experience working at CCY has led to some of the most valued friendships I've made. Being part of this community is hands down the best perk of the job.
