Hey guys!
Thanks for visiting my personal page to fundraise for Achilles International.

In May 2013, my mom called me frantically at 11pm on a Friday night. She exclaimed over the phone, "Go to - RIGHT NOW." Turns out she had just had dinner with a board member and his wife, who knew Achilles was looking to add on a new staff member. My mom knew that I had been searching for a full-time, career-related job in non-profit fundraising and development since I graduated Stockton six months before. But to no avail, I hadn't even scored an interview anywhere!!

After a series of emails and phone calls, I found myself playing phone tag one fine Monday with Achilles Founder & President, Dick Traum. He called me for the second time while I was in the shower, and I sprung out with suds in my hair to take the call. He wanted me to come to the Achilles HQ office in two days for an interview!! I hopped in my car from Atlantic City to New York, and that was the beginning of the end.

I was offered the job the day of the interview, put in my two weeks at Gourmet Italian Cuisine where i served the socialites of South Jersey, and booked it home .. to Randolph. Now I work full time in midtown Manhattan,
