Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 12 major cities coast to coast, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.
Grace is a senior manager as the Chapter Director for the DC Chapter and brings over decade of diverse experience in business development fundraising. She was in business development in the corporate sector in Minneapolis, MN where she also earned her BA in communications. She made the decision to change her career focus to nonprofit work in 2013 because it directly aligned with her personal values; having herself experienced the struggles of having no home when she was a young orphan, Back on My Feet’s mission speaks to her very deeply. Grace believes in the core values of Back on My Feet- that individuals struggling who gain the support of an invested community are then able to face the challenge and hard work of gaining skills training, employment and housing through the program of Back on My Feet.
