Siera joins NonProfitConnect as Project Coordinator. Her role entails coordinating the execution of NonProfitConnect’s programming, serving as our point of contact, and managing internal and external communications. She brings fresh ideas and perspective on issues related to DEI to NonProfitConnect’s team and programs.
She previously worked as an educator at Reconstruction US and Hostos Community College. In the nonprofit industry, she’s worked as a community engagement associate at DonorsChoose and Crisis Counselor at Crisis Text Line. The causes she enjoys supporting relate to self-care, mental health, women’s and LGBTQIA+ rights, animal welfare, HIV/AIDS awareness, sustainability, and those that aim to dismantle American work culture so it affirms DEI.
Aside from NonProfitConnect, Siera is a serial creatorpreneur (creator and entrepreneur), trauma-informed healer, motivational educator, and writer. Siera graduated college magna cum laude with a bachelor’s of science degree in business and content strategy from CUNY’s impressive Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies program. She was Chief Executive Officer of Affirm Noire, a platform that advocated the self-care and mental health of BIPOC creators and business owners. She is a reiki practitioner and is poised to begin graduate school to pursue a master’s of social work degree at Rutgers University to study the effects of trauma on Black women and caregivers.
