Khalisa joins us from Population Services International (PSI), where she served as their manager of major gifts. Prior to her time with PSI she worked in a variety of capacities in development teams, building her capital campaign skills. At the University of Florida she focused on events and the annual fund. In her time at Georgetown University she learned to execute the logistics of large galas, manage regional campaigns and mentor regional clubs. Reunions, regional campaigns and school-based campaigns were her focus at the University of Virginia. She holds a BA from the University of Virginia in Psychology and a MBA from the University of Florida.
“With a wealth of campaign and development experience and highly professional approach, Khalisa will be a great addition to the NPCA team,” says NPCA President Kevin Quigley. She will be a great asset to the Peace Corps community as we work to us meet our 50th Anniversary campaign goals.”
Unlike the majority of the NPCA staff, Khalisa is not a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. However she sees this as an opportunity to inspire a community that believes in the NPCA’s mission. Says Khalisa,
I will use this personal inspiration to talk to the Peace Corps community about reviving the energy the Peace Corps has successfully conveyed for the past 50 years. We have a real opportunity to use this anniversary to invigorate anyone who believes in helping people abroad, helping Americans understand other cultures and helping to promote a better understanding of Americans.
