Sierra is more than elated to be joining the Stonewall Columbus team as the organization’s Business & Infrastructure Manager. Sierra comes to the center with a wide variety of experiences ranging from facilities management, DEI consulting, and fundraising.
While attending Ohio Northern University, Sierra began her fundraising career helping plan on-campus fundraising events for students and alumni as well as trying her hand at writing pieces featuring the university’s unique donor base. After graduating from Ohio Northern University in 2019 with her Bachelor’s in Science, Business Administration, Sierra began her work at Columbus’ local Ohio Living Foundation as a Development Coordinator where she assisted the team on their direct fundraising efforts and storytelling of the members of their community through their quarterly newsletter. Sierra received her Masters of Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma at the end of 2021, specializing in the intersectionality of racial and sexual identity and mental health.
Through her time as the House Director of the local OSU Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha, as well as serving as the organization’s DEI Consultant, she gained insight into running a facility as well as how to create and provide an inclusive space for students within the community.
Sierra is most excited to get to work on planning and implementing Columbus Pride 2023, growing our member base, and hosting more enriching and exciting events in the beautiful newly renovated Stonewall Community Center.
