It’s a good thing that Kara Whaley says that her superpower is spreadsheets because she’s joined YNPN Cleveland’s Board of Directors to provide Budget and Evaluation Support. She currently works in web design and administration at Annevar Media, LLC, a job that started out part-time as she tried to figure out what she really wanted to do. She now enjoys this work very much. It involves connecting with clients, managing data, and learning new things—all skills that make her perfect to serve on our organization’s Board.
MacKenzie Phillips came to Cleveland from Arkansas, and we’re happy she’s here—and that she knew about YNPN from her previous experiences in her Arkansas chapter! Because YNPN is a national network, she knew that finding a Cleveland chapter would bring her in touch with young professionals with similar goals. After serving as YNPN Cleveland’s President (2015-2016), MacKenzie now serves as our Ex Officio to advise the Board of Directors and to build partnerships between YNPN Cleveland and like-minded organizations.
The love that YNPN Cleveland’s new President Rebecca Rogg has for nonprofits stems from her long history of involvement in the arts. Originally from Cranberry Township, PA (near Pittsburgh), she was involved in theater and choir growing up. She came to Cleveland to attend Baldwin Wallace University, where she completed her B.A. in Studio Art and minored in Spanish. Now, Rebecca says that her favorite part of living in Cleveland is how much art and culture is just so close at hand, from museums in University Circle to the Metroparks surrounding the city.
