CFSC Staff Appreciation!
Originally from Chicago, Annette lived in San Jose for 17 years before moving to Sonoma County to trade in her high-tech lifestyle for philanthropic management. Annette is a big believer in the power of community. She began her community-focused work as a way to feel more connected and gain a sense of belonging in Sonoma County.
As community impact coordinator at Community Foundation Sonoma County, she uses her project management experience to administer grant programs from the Community Foundation to local non-profits.
Before coming to the Community Foundation, she worked at several technology companies, including Cisco and WebEx. Her expertise in project management as well as her project planning skills, enables her to thrive and shine in her role as Community Impact Coordinator.
Annette enjoys the outdoors and is an avid golfer. When not outside or in the office, she is most likely learning to play the guitar, spending time with her two grown daughters, or traveling with her husband.
