After a path that included owning a small business and working for a large corporation, she has found her work for non-profit organizations with missions about which she is passionate to be the most gratifying of her career. Dede previously served for seven years as membership manager at The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic House in Glens Falls, NY, after seven years at the Lake George Land Conservancy in Bolton Landing, NY, as finance & office manager and donor relations manager. She holds a B.A. in Public Administration from Miami University of Ohio.
Dede moved to the foothills of the Adirondacks in 1986 after living in Jackson Hole, WY, delighted to find the beauty of the natural landscapes in both places to be equally inspiring.
