As the Development Director for the state office, Carina has the great opportunity to support the Washington CIS network with board engagement, fundraising strategies and events. Her background has allowed her to learn from different sectors in the non-profit world: healthcare, chamber of commerce, and higher education.
“Nothing gives me more happiness than being able to connect people and companies to what they are passionate about while creating a better today and tomorrow for the communities we get to serve,” says Carina. “I love CIS because we meet students and families where they are and only work to make life more equitable and better for them—to create long term success and freedom.”
Carina grew up in Appleton, WI and lives in Milton today. She and her husband love to kayak, hike and explore the beauty of WA. When recharging throughout the week, Carina enjoys cooking and some down time with her three kitties.
