I came into the world of nonprofit finance by pure accident and with no relevant credentials. After graduating college with degrees in Sociology and Peace Studies, I knew that I wanted to work in a mission-based environment but had trouble identifying an entry point. I was lucky to be hired in an administrative role by the Chicago-based Delta Institute, where I saw firsthand the difference that strong operational and financial structures can make towards organizational impact.
In the decade since that initial introduction, I have worked with a wide range of nonprofit organizations to develop and maintain operational systems that enable them to effectively carry out their work. Over the course of this professional journey, I have attended countless hours of City Colleges night school, sat for and passed the CPA exams, and worked with clients on all sorts of financial management solutions. I’ve loved the work of streamlining and strengthening operations so that organizations can give their full focus to advancing mission. I very much look forward to continuing to do so through my role at CNT!
