In 2011, I relocated to Portland from Chicago. Making the move, I left behind family, friends and Riccardo Muti. Luckily for me, I quickly found him on All Classical Portland every Saturday night from 6-8pm! I was further delighted to discover that the Music Director of the Oregon Symphony, Carlos Kalmar, is also the Principal Conductor of the Grant Park Music Festival in Chicago. Homesickness cured!
Over the years, I have worn multiple hats in non–profit and for-profit arenas. My diverse experience with museum education, PBS fundraising, media research and sales have all uniquely prepared me for my role now as All Classical Portland’s Major Gifts Officer. I’m thrilled to be part of the 89.9 family! When I’m not at the station, I enjoy exploring restaurants and wineries with my husband, Shane, and being a “soccer mom” for our son, Zachary.
