National Development Director
Isa joined the Little Kids Rock band back in 2006 when our stage was Dave’s attic and our assistant was his cat Tigger! She fell in love with the mission and Dave’s vision and worked hard as the “Jill of all trades” over the next six years to annually (almost) double the income, staff, office square footage, and impact of Little Kids Rock! In 2012 she moved to Western Massachusetts and stepped into a more fundraising focused position as the Director of Best Buddies Western/Central Massachusetts.
As the Director, she worked with the board of directors and various committees to successfully increase funding by more than 110% and sharpened her skills in managing relationships with participants, teachers, vendors, donors, other local organizations, volunteers, corporations, the staff she managed, and Advisory Board members. She has also lead a practice as an executive coach.
With her strong skill set, continued enthusiasm for Little Kids Rock, strong relationship to a number of current staff members and her executive coaching skills she rejoined the band in April of 2015 as the Director of Development. She is extremely excited to lead such a dynamic team!
In her free time Isa loves to hike, bike, practice yoga, travel as much as possible (Ireland being her favorite destination so far), drink good coffee with great friends, nerd out to NPR, take in concerts (anything from Brandi Carlisle to Nine Inch Nails), and attend as many festivals as possible!
