Development Manager

Emily brings extensive experience from her previous role at Community Foundation Sonoma County, where she excelled in donor relations, planned giving, and grantmaking.

Emily brings a strong sense of organization and analytical thinking to her role. As Development Manager, she is responsible for managing our donor database and ensuring that our development team remains on track with our strategic goals. Additionally, she will support our Development Director in helping secure individual and family gifts that support the Foundation’s mission, guiding donors in legacy giving and engaging local businesses in making a significant community impact by partnering with NVCF.

Having grown up in Napa Valley, Emily loves being able to give back to the community that means so much to her. She lives in Calistoga with her husband and their two rambunctious vineyard dogs. Emily graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a BA in History and an emphasis in Middle Eastern History after spending a year abroad in Cairo.
