I came to the Wikimedia movement and the Funds Dissemination Committee with a passion for strategic and high-impact grantmaking, collaborative work, and transparent decision-making. My background includes philanthropic activities and NGO programs, systems, and operations. Over the years, I have developed and served on a number of creative grantmaking programs, including a giving circle and several local and national grants panels.
I have lived, worked, and traveled in about 40 countries, and speak Spanish and Portuguese and (hopefully) 'good enough' French. If needed, I always have a team building activity or an icebreaker ready to share.
I now serve as the Community Resources team's director. I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in January 2013 as the first Senior Program Officer for the newly constituted Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) / Annual Plan Grant program. Through an innovative and participatory grantmaking process, the FDC aims to effectively allocate movement funds to achieve Wikimedia’s mission, vision, and strategy.
