Why I work at OneJustice:
As soon as I read OneJustice’s mission statement, I knew that it was an organization that I’d find personally fulfilling to work for, especially given the unfortunate circumstances facing so many disenfranchised and underserved populations in California – and nationwide – today.
As Development Director, I will be focused on building upon the success of OneJustice’s annual fundraiser and awards dinner, to be held at an exciting new venue to be announced shortly. I look forward to sharing my experience in sponsorship marketing, promotional events and media strategies with the Development and Communications team as we strive to engage more Californians in support of our mission. I am excited to work with our amazing Board of Directors and Advisory Council to leverage their talents and connections as well.
I have had the privilege of fundraising for nonprofits for most of my career. After consulting for the California State Parks Foundation, Wender Weis Foundation for Children and Sustainable Lafayette over the past 20 years (while raising my two boys), I was looking for a new project and happened to see OneJustice’s posting for a temporary special event manager.
I really love:
I love snorkeling with sea turtles (and other marine life)! Being face down in the ocean provides me with a serenity not often found outside of yoga class. My favorite spot is Ahihi Marine Reserve in Maui. Can’t wait to go back!
