Welcome TJFP’s newest staff member, Nicole Fernandes!

TJFP is extremely pleased to announce our newest staff member, Nicole Fernandes as our very first Administrative Director!

Nicole first began working closely with us when she became a 2020 Community Grantmaking Fellow and now we’re thrilled to have her in this role as a full time staff member.  As we’ve expressed to Nicole and to so many of you, thank you for saying, ‘yes’ to us.  Nicole is no stranger to devoting her skills and talents to supporting trans liberation.

Nicole has strong experience in administrative roles, including roles in nonprofit and grassroots organizations.  Some of Nicole’s experience includes serving as an Information and Referral Specialist at The Center and most recently serving as the Finance and Administrative Associate at Funders for LGBTQ Issues. When she isn’t working, Nicole loves to play with her acrylic paints and tend to her plant babies. She is very excited to bring the skills she’s learned along her journey to serve the trans community.

Please join us in warmly welcoming Nicole to the team!
