At the Trust
I work every day to ensure the Trust’s investments achieve Mrs. Reynolds’ vision of improving the health and quality of life of North Carolinians. I lead strategic direction and am responsible for overall management of the Trust. As president, I represent the Trust and take a leadership role in philanthropy at the state and national level.
My Proudest Accomplishment
My proudest accomplishments are those of the Trust, including, after 70 years, setting a new strategic direction to achieve Mrs. Reynolds’ vision. I am excited that everything we do—our grantmaking, our messaging, and even our website—remain consistent with Mrs. Reynolds’ values, to inform our success today.
