Dear Members of ABAG,

It is with very mixed emotions that I let you know I am leaving ABAG as Communications Director at the end of the year.

After 16 years, I am ready for a new adventure!

I am still determining what I want this new adventure to be, but it will likely be in the form of a new position or taking on interesting consulting jobs within the philanthropic sector. I plan to stay through most of December, and will be working closely with Celeste and our staff through this period of transition.

I have absolutely loved my 16 year tenure at ABAG!

I began working here in a consulting role as the Director of the Baltimore Giving Project, a five-year effort to promote and increase philanthropy in the region, and then became part of the core staff as ABAG’s first Communications Director. I’ve been so fortunate to learn and grow personally and professionally through a very interesting decade and half where so much in our world has changed.
The professionalism and dedication of each of my colleagues during my time at ABAG has been incredibly motivating and inspiring. I cannot express enough my appreciation for the collegiality among our staff and the support within our network the last 16 years. And, I have truly enjoyed working with and for our dedicated membership. It has been wonderful working for such a strong, smart and healthy organization.

I will remain closely connected to ABAG as my husband Howard and I, and our four children, become members through the Beaudoin-Schwartz Family Fund at the Community Foundation of Howard County.

I look forward to continuing to promote the good work of philanthropy and remain fully committed to the work of the sector. Having just completed ABAG’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, and with an incredible staff and board at the helm, I’m excited to continue to be a part of the transformational work that lies ahead for ABAG and our membership.

I will leave ABAG as Communications Director having worked with the most visionary leaders, the best mentors, the strongest network of people who care about making a difference, and with many important friendships. My sincerest thanks in particular to ABAG Presidents Celeste Amato and Betsy Nelson, both of whom have been exceptional leaders, mentors and friends.

In the meantime, I’ll be here for the next three months and will look forward to being in good touch!
