Northern California Community Loan Fund
San Francisco, California
Sally brings an impact framework to her loan officer role that is informed by ten years working at innovative nonprofits and within the Federal Government prior to becoming a lender. In her previous roles Sally focused on organizational effectiveness, systems change and public policy. She also embraced a number of opportunities to join new mission-driven efforts during their very early stages, and three of these include the Promise Zones Initiative at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Berkeley Food Institute at UC Berkeley and, most recently, a startup workforce development nonprofit called Opportunity@Work. Sally completed a Master of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, a BA at Wesleyan University and a year-long ecological horticulture apprenticeship at Alemany Farm in San Francisco.
