Prior to joining Direct Relief, Heather worked at the Council of Community Clinics in San Diego, CA where she raised funds and developed programs to increase access to affordable and quality healthcare for low-income and uninsured people. Heather has a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and History from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Heather is excited to join the Unite to Light board because Direct Relief and Unite to Light already work closely to mobilize and deliver solar lights to people around the world affected by emergencies. She looks forward to strengthening that bond; the mission of Unite to Light resonates with her deeply as a humanitarian whose career has focused on changing lives for the better.
In 1991, Maggi joined the International Youth Foundation (IYF) shortly after it was established, playing numerous key leadership roles as the organization grew, including direct program and organizational leadership of a fast-growing network of partner foundations across Asia, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Today, IYF is among the world’s leading public foundations focused on investing in young people, with operations in more than 100 countries.
We are thrilled to welcome Maggi and Heather! We are confident their skills and passion will contribute to Unite to Light’s growth — making a positive impact around the world. We are committed to supporting our board members and are grateful for their dedication to our success. With the guidance of our new members, we are excited to make the world even brighter!
