Adriane’s first job was as a barista at her neighborhood coffee shop in high school. Since then, she has dedicated her career to the nonprofit sector, working on issues ranging from education and community development to public health and environmental justice. Common threads in her work have been the pursuit of social justice and serving underserved communities. Adriane has been the CEO of Juma since 2017, following six years on staff as Juma doubled its budget (to $7m), tripled the number of sites (to the current footprint of six cities) and quadrupled the number of youth served (to nearly one thousand per year). Adriane has held the roles of Chief Operating Officer, Chief Program Officer and Managing Director of Programs, but her journey with Juma started when she began volunteering in 2005.
Adriane serves on the board of the Hidden Genius Project, and sits on the Council of Nonprofit Leaders for Charity Navigator. She previously served on the board of Huckleberry Youth Programs, and is an alumna of the American Express Leadership Academy. Prior to joining Juma, Adriane managed a housing and social services program for youth aging out of foster care with Local Initiatives Support Corporation. Adriane holds an MBA with an emphasis in nonprofit management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, as well as an M.A. in social psychology and a B.A. in comparative studies in race and ethnicity from Stanford University. She resides in Oakland with her husband and two sons.
