PJ brings nearly 20 years of fundraising and event planning experience; in this role she manages CSF events in the Nation’s Capital and around the country.

In her role as the Senior Director, Events and Donor Relations, PJ has the pleasure to plan and implement CSF’s variety of hunting and fishing centric events every year. From their Congressional Clays Competition with their Bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, to their one-of-a-kind, Wine, Wheels & Wildlife with Richard Childress, CSF sets the standard for Sportsmen’s events.
Prior to joining CSF, PJ was the Director of Political and Special Events at Epiphany Productions, Inc. During her 5-year tenure, she executed large- and small-scale meetings and events for a diverse clientele throughout the United States and Europe.
