On Working at FSG
"I’ve had the opportunity to learn from and support a wide range of community-based philanthropists over the last 15 years, and I never cease to be fascinated by each unique community and the process of crafting the right strategy to fit a distinct set of needs, resources, values, relationships, and leadership approaches.”
