Capacity Building Assistant

Started at Nexus: 2016

I came to Nexus in the summer of 2016 as an intern through New Sector Alliance’s nonprofit summer fellowship program. My internship focused on supporting the Better Bus Stops program to promote transit equity in the Twin Cities region. After my fellowship ended, I was hired on as a Capacity Building Assistant. In this role, I continue to primarily work on Better Bus Stops while also assisting with development & fundraising, and providing administrative support to the Director of HR & Finance.

I will be finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies at the University of Minnesota this December. After graduation, I hope to continue the work that I have begun in the nonprofit world of the Twin Cities.

I am honored and proud to work with the dynamic, thoughtful, equity-driven leaders at Nexus. When I’m not at Nexus, I am studying, baking, or looking at French bulldogs on Instagram.
