I'm a major donor specialist and owner of Summit Fundraising (named from a love or rock climbing). I've got 13 years of major gifts fundraising experience after starting my career in sales and marketing at Unilever. I've worked in major gifts roles, as a Director of Fundraising, and with over 100 charities helping them raise more large gifts. I'm a trustee of an international charity and have a distinction in the Certificate in Philanthropic Psychology from the Institute of Sustainable Philanthropy. I live in Surrey with my husband, 2 very energetic boys, a cat and chickens!
