I came to The Foundation after spending over a decade representing clients in business and insolvency related legal matters. The transition has been incredibly rewarding. Whether I’m guiding donors through the technical aspects of charitable planning or facilitating an exploration of the values and goals driving their giving, the hope and kindness I see is inspiring.
