Capacity Building Assistant

Started at Nexus: 2016

At Nexus:

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 focus on development & fundraising, evaluation, and supporting the Director of Finance & HR.


I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies from the University of Minnesota in 2016. I am honored and proud to work with the dynamic, thoughtful, equity-driven leaders at Nexus. When I’m not at Nexus, I am biking, baking, or looking at French bulldogs on Instagram.
