As the relationships executive assistant, Olivia supports the senior director of donor relations and services and team in all initiatives and activities. She provides the necessary leadership and communication skills to work effectively with management, staff, constituents and trustees to accomplish the strategic goals of the foundation.
Prior to joining CFT, Olivia worked alongside the president and CEO of Northwest Area Foundation (NWAF) in St. Paul, Minnesota. As liaison to the NWAF’s board of directors, she coordinated quarterly meetings, annual retreats and committee meetings. She also managed projects out of the president’s office and assisted in governance oversight. In that role, Olivia worked alongside colleagues connected to NWAF’s mission as they serve Native nations, communities of color, rural communities, and other resilient communities who have fewer opportunities to thrive on their own terms. Olivia also served on the staff-led diversity, equity and inclusion steering committee.
