On working at FSG
“Being around a high-powered group of driven individuals who care about impact above all else—and who make decisions on a daily basis that reflect this value—has been truly inspirational. The opportunity to work at the cutting edge of social impact and create strategies, practices, and knowledge that could influence not only isolated nonprofits or foundations but also alter larger institutions, systems, and behaviors is not one that I take lightly. I am beyond excited to be a part of an organization that, like me, sets its sights shamelessly high while still being intensely pragmatic and results-oriented.”
