The Northern Nevada International Center, has promoted program managers, Stacy Kinion and Gladys Wilson, to the manager level within the organization. Accompanied with the internal promotions are two board appointments, Erika Lamb and Karen Galatz.
Since 2016, Kinion has overseen youth programs including the Youth Leadership Program with Algeria, the Youth Leadership Program with Kenya and the Brazil Youth Ambassadors Program. She applies her several years of bilingual educator experience in Madrid, Spain and frequent travel to countries to build connections across myriad cultures.
As program manager, Kinion will be responsible for the growing collection of youth and professional programs.
With more than 12 years of experience working with international and domestic nonprofit organizations, Wilson has spearheaded NNIC’s Refugee Resettlement Program over the last four years. As a Honduran immigrant, she applies her firsthand experience to bridge a connection with clients and leads them to resources to encourage sustainable independence. As a program manager, Wilson will work on expanding the team’s capabilities.
Joining the board of directors are Lamb, a local real estate professional and Galatz, a former journalism professional with a refugee and resettlement advocacy background. The women join the 15 existing board of directors, led by board president Riley Sutton, and board vice president Nathan Anderson.
In response to the growing resettlement needs, NNIC hired additional team members to ensure constituents have access to proper guidance. Aimee Lynne-Hirschowitz, Scott Oliver, and Mackenzie Peterson join as case aides, while Krystal Bosworth joins as a program assistant and will help ensure program management efforts move forward.
