Development & Communications Officer for a Non-Profit (Fundraiser)

WHAT SHE DOES FOR LOVE: "I am a writer."

HER STYLE: "A beauty aspect that makes me feel the happiest is my DKNY Be Delicious perfume. I've worn it just about everyday since I've been 23. It smells like apples and I love that when I wear it I feel like something good is bound to happen! Also, L'Oreal Infallible Eyeliner in Carbon Black - it makes me feel chic and dangerous - it seems like it would be a good eyeliner for an undercover spy!"

HER 2015 GOAL: "My goal for the year is to get my memoir published!"

A LADY SHE ADMIRES: "A woman who I consider a mentor is my executive director Kerry Robinson. She approaches every day and every situation with endless optimism and kindness. She is smart, strong, loving and fair all while being a badass executive director in a very male dominated world. She is an inspiration!"

WHY SHE'S A LADY GUN: "Katie McKenna is a lady filled with and surrounded by love. And I can’t think of anyone more deserving of such a blessing. She is the brightest light in every room, gives the strongest, warmest hugs -- somehow knowing exactly when you need one, and is such a compassionate listener. She is a champion for her friends and loved ones and has a killer sense of humor. She is open, warm, eternally positive and never passes judgement. 

Over three years ago, Katie helped me through a tough time surrounding my surgery, after having known me for all of an afternoon. She offered wisdom, guidance, and hope, while allowing me to shuffle around my negative thoughts and fears -- and continues to do so still. I’m so happy to know her and call her my friend -- and I’m excited that today you get to know her too!"
