Non-Profit Portfolio

Girls Inc of Carpinteria  ~  March 2013 – Present


Girls Incorporated is a non-profit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart and bold. They provide programs for girls 6 to 18 years old that focus on science, math, and technology; health and sexuality; economic and financial literacy; sports skills; leadership and advocacy; and media literacy.

I helped Girls Inc of Carpinteria realize their goal of a monthly newsletter. With my experience using Constant Contact, I guided the team through setting up their account and created a template using their custom color palette. Our first newsletter email was sent in June 2013 with positive feedback and we have much more work to do!

Community Involvement Committee 2013Our goal is to provide assistance that is consistent with the QAD core values of Partnership with our Customers, Commitment to Excellence, Innovation, Global Teamwork, Integrity, and Respect for the Individual. We are focused on funding local non-profit organizations that provide technology education for children.

CSUN Helpline  ~  May 2008 – June 2010

A public crisis intervention, support and referral service provided in conjunction with CSUN University Counseling Services and Associated Students, Inc. the CSUN HelpLine is a team of telephone crisis response volunteers primarily serving the CSUN campus and the San Fernando Valley community. Volunteers complete a 40 hour intensive training.

I was a crisis phone listener, shift supervisor, new volunteer trainer and served on the Board of Directors as Vice President and Director of Operations. I received the Stacy Lynn Baker Service Award for outstanding work and dedication in June 2010. As Director of Operations, I supervised up to five assistants and ensured that the shifts were covered, the organization ran smoothly and membership records were complete and current. I initiated additional projects to improve Helpline and some of my work included:

  • Demographics – I compiled voluntarily obtained demographics data from previous years and created a reporting system for monthly updates. I oversaw the creation of a yearly printed report available for volunteers. The exact demographic data is confidential and not available on this site.
  • Annual Member Survey – I created an annual survey for volunteers and reported the suggestions and overall happiness of our members to the Board of Directors. Before leaving the organization I obtained an Organizational Development consultant to host the survey and offer guidance pro bono.
  • Director of Operations Summary – I wrote a guide codifying each Operations Assistant’s job responsibilities as well as an in depth training guide for the Director of Operations position. The text is protected under a privacy agreement and not available on this site.
  • Special Programs – Using a number of techniques I increased shift coverage 108% within 18 months. Detailed information on the programs I enacted is available on this page however, it is password protected.
