To create a community which fosters self-respect, compassion, and empathy.

She cultivates relationships in the nonprofit and public sectors to inform and maximize the use of Cinnaire’s community development resources. She also oversees activities for seeking and securing funds for Cinnaire’s community development agenda and for identifying private, public, local, and national funding partners.
