Why do you do what you do?
Early on in my career, I was an auditor and had the opportunity to work with nonprofit clients. It was through this experience that I developed an interest in nonprofits and admiration for these organizations and their mission-driven work.
What drew you to the foundation?
I am inspired by the foundation’s commitment to racial equity and economic inclusion. The foundation’s mission and values resonate with me, and I feel very fortunate that I can be part of an organization that not only carries out its values through its work with the community but also internally with staff.
How would you describe your role?
My role is to support and assist in overseeing the day-to-day accounting operations. I ensure the foundation’s financial transactions are recorded accurately, timely, and in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). I also maintain and review internal controls to ensure operational efficiency and adherence to policies and regulations.
