Message from the Executive Director
It is my honor to lead a talented team with a passion for making International Focus the most impactful organization it can be, expanding educational opportunities and quality of life for the Research Triangle.
I joined International Focus in November of 2013 as the director of the International Visitor Leadership Program and ensured organizational transitions in the years following. Since then, I have overseen programs, events, operations, annual budget, and our small team of staff. My responsibilities also include collaborating with our board of directors on governance frameworks, strategic planning, fundraising, business development, and communication. Most notably during this period, International Focus has won various local and national awards for peace, diversity, mentorship, and programming excellence.
In my new role, I will continue to build a relevant presence for international understanding as well as pride in our legacy, history, and the successive contributions of our many supporters over the years. Most important of all is to build a strong organizational profile as a respected partner in these changing and challenging times, by revitalizing our vision to better serve our community at large.
I again look forward to working with all of you.
