Cierra joined the Cancer Research Institute in August 2017 as a data entry and gift processing assistant, working closely with the development team to ensure all donations are processed and to cultivate the most promising relationships with our small donors. In 2018, she transitioned to Community Fundraising Coordinator. She now manages a portfolio of fundraisers, motivating and stewarding them throughout the peer-to-peer fundraising process.
Prior to joining CRI Cierra graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in Biology. Her years of involvement in cell-based research and the loss of her grandfather to esophageal cancer in 2013 have strengthened her passion to reach a future without cancer.
In her spare time Cierra enjoys cooking for family and friends, as well as exploring the hidden gems of New York.
