She describes in the paragraph below, how her experiences in the Music Department impacted her life and the path she has chosen.
"I am so grateful to my parents, my teachers/mentors, and my peers for my Emory education. It was a special time for all of us in the Music Department - students and teachers alike - as we expanded from the Humanities to the Burlington Road Building (BRB), our home away from home. When we were at BRB, we were really at BRB, body and spirit, on the edge of the Emory campus, practicing alone and/or together and creating a nurturing and inclusive artist community. This unique experience has prepared me for the path to social profit, providing professional development for staff at 285+ grantmaking organizations in the New York region and nurturing the growth of a vibrant learning community for effective philanthropy on a local, national, and global scale."
