Community Manager specializing in Program Design, Event Production, Public Policy and Communications

Ms. Finkelstein has over a decade of experience in the fields of program management, communications, market research and community service. She has worked as a teacher, manager, director and community organizer for multiple philanthropic, political and educational based organizations. Most recently she directed philanthropic resources, managed programs and developed social media strategies at New Israel Fund, Full Circle Fund and the San Francisco based JCF and Endowment Fund.

Prior to living and working in San Francisco, Ms. Finkelstein served as a close adviser to United States Congressman, Jared Polis. As the Founding Executive Director of the Jared Polis Foundation she created a diversified philanthropic strategy that Rep. Polis continues to rely on today. Together with Congressman Polis she managed a staff of 20, administered grants to community programs, and managed the creation of three unique public charter schools as well as four nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organizations.

Having literally grown up working in her family’s home decorating retail stores, she knows how to work hard while maintaining focus on a constantly evolving bigger picture. She recently completed the Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership San Francisco program, received a BA from the University of Oregon and earned a Master’s in Nonprofit Management from Regis University. While discovering what is the next big choice in her career, she consults with companies on improving everyday social media practices, sees select clients with a side-consulting practice in organized living, teaches religious school and most importantly- spoils her nieces.
