After JDRF, Hope worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Jersey where she re-created Dishes for Wishes, an event that partnered with the SJ Hot Chefs to bring attendees delicious food, the opportunity to support a great cause and a highly successful auction. While at Make-A-Wish, Hope worked to coordinate and raise money as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation®’s Adopt-A-Wish development program. Then, as Director of Special Initiatives at Deborah Hospital Foundation, she was responsible for the 19th Annual NFLPA Golf & Tennis Tournament which not only raised more money than the goal but was also the most successfully planned and executed Tournament since its inception.
Hope took a step in her mother’s direction after Deborah Heart & Lung Foundation by opening her own business called Hopeful Solutions. An event planning and fundraising consulting company, Hope worked with 6abc, City Avenue Special Services District, AIDS Law Project of PA and many more. However, she couldn’t work solely on events because to her, it’s all tied to PR. So she brought her mother in on events when she could and the two found out that they worked very well together.
In December of 2018, Hope completed the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program. Chosen out of a large pool of applicants, Hope is excited to apply what she learned to FHPR.
Active in the community, Hope is on the programming committee for the Philadelphia Public Relations Association of Philadelphia (PPRA), was on the Leadership Committee of the eWomenNetwork in South Jersey, and was the Vice President of Programs and Education for the New Jersey South Chapter of the International Special Events Society Board. She regularly attends many networking events associated with PPRA, Center City Proprietors Association (CCPA), various area Chambers of Commerce and more. In 2016, Hope was named an Emerging Leader by the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce. She also received a Reader’s Choice Award from SNJ Business. Hope lives in Moorestown, NJ with her husband Joe, two little girls, Sari and Jaclyn, and their dog, Cookie.
