Ali started her career, straight out of the University of Virginia, in executive search. From 2011 to 2013, she worked as a research associate for SG Partners in New York. From there, she worked as a grants manager for the New York-based Moore Charitable Foundation, the private, family foundation founded by hedge fund manager and conservationist Louis Bacon. The Foundation supports nonprofit organizations that protect land, wildlife, habitat and water resources.
Prior to joining Coleman Lew Canny Bowen, Ali served as an account manager for Signature Consultants’ Charlotte office. During her tenure at the IT-focused firm, she built from scratch and managed the office’s direct hire recruiting division.
She brings her grant-reviewing experience to bear in her volunteer work with Social Venture Partners’ SEED20 initiative. Each year, SEED20 trains a select group of nonprofit leaders on developing succinct and compelling messaging that will attract attention and donors.
