Originally from Houston, she spent the last six years working with marginalized youth in Texas, Swaziland, and China. In the future, she wants to work with organizations uplifting the most disadvantaged and vulnerable populations through education reform and anti-poverty initiatives.

Shaina Flesser
Shaina grew up in San Diego, CA before moving up to Irvine, CA to get her B.A. in Political Science from the University of California Irvine. Following graduation, she worked in marketing for the University of California Irvine, Division of Continuing Education. With a passion for volunteering for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), Shaina became close with the volunteers and staff at the local Orange Country chapter, and after a few years of volunteering, was able to transition into a staff role herself! She currently works for the Foundation in a Development Director role, working on a few of their fundraising special events. Through her work with CFF and volunteer experience before that, Shaina discovered her drive to make a career in the nonprofit sector, and decided to pursue a graduate degree in that field. She is currently in her second year of the Masters of Public Administration program with a focus on nonprofit management.
