I'm a senior manager in Novogradac’s public policy group in Washington, D.C. that works with New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) clients and am part of the NMTC Working Group. I am focused on expanding Novogradac’s work with community development financial institutions (CDFIs) around the country. I spent 13 years at the CDFI Fund, the final six as program manager of the NMTC and Bank Enterprise Award programs. Before that, I had a private consulting practice. I have worked in the financial and community development industries including Neighborhood Reinvestment aka NeighborWorks America. I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a master’s degree from The American College of Financial Services.
