I joined the P.L.A.Y. Network as a committee member in the Winter of 2018 after being introduced to Horizons through my mentor and member of the Horizon’s Board of Directors, Janice Sturchio. I was moved by the incredibly important work that Horizons does and as I learned more, I knew I wanted to find a way to get more involved. Shortly after joining the P.L.A.Y. Network, I started volunteering as a PAL. I continue to be in awe of the work that Horizons does for children and their families experiencing homelessness.
I work as an Investor Relations Associate at WindSail Capital Group, LLC and on a personal level enjoy spending time with friends and family, any and all outdoor activities, and cheering on Boston sports teams!
I first learned about Horizons for Homeless Children through the Annual Women’s Breakfast event in 2016, when Chris Gardner was the keynote speaker. I walked away from that event wanting to get more involved, wanting to be part of the special community that Kate and the Horizons team had created. Shortly after this event, I learned more about the P.L.A.Y. Network and immediately reached out to join the committee!
Outside of the P.L.A.Y. Network, I am a Business Manager within Investment Research at Wellington Management. In my free time, my biggest passions are family and food. I love to try new recipes and explore restaurants around Boston with my fiancé Will. When I am not cooking, I am most likely catching up with one of my siblings or spending time outside with my english cream retriever, Bentley!
I have been involved with Horizons since 2018 when I first started attending events like the Trivia night and Everybody Fights Fundraisers. After continuing to attend events and learning more about Horizon’s mission over the next few years, I joined the P.L.A.Y. Network in the Fall of 2021. I love being a small part of the incredible work that Horizon’s does for families in Massachusetts.
Throughout my time with Horizons, I have learned so much about the positive impact that early education has on the rest of a child’s life. I continue to be blown away by Horizon’s support network for children and families experiencing homelessness.
Outside of the P.L.A.Y. network, I am a Vendor Manager for an ecommerce aggregator called Boosted Commerce. I live in the North End of Boston and can be found spending time with friends, enjoying the outdoors, and watching the Patriots.
I got involved in Horizons in the Spring of 2018 after attending a P.L.A.Y. Network event at Everybody Fights Gym in Seaport. I was blown away by the commitment and passion that Horizons has for raising awareness about youth homelessness and I knew I had to get involved.
Outside of being an active member of the P.L.A.Y. Network, I work at Rapid7 as a People Strategist. I enjoy staying active (trying new gym classes, running, golfing), traveling, baking and spending time on the Cape with my family.
