Anita moved to San Francisco from New York after graduating from Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. She immediately fell in love with the west coast lifestyle, as she could spend her days biking, going to yoga and spending time outside in parks and open spaces nearly every day of the year. Prior to joining NPC, Anita worked as a public relations professional for three years, where she had the opportunity to work with various nonprofits, technology and medical device companies. As the development associate, she implements NPC’s fund development, including individual donor cultivation, corporate support, foundation research and grantwriting. Anita also provides support in coordinating NPC’s events and oversees NPC’s Twitter and Facebook page. One of Anita’s favorite parks in San Francisco is Dolores Park.
