At YWCA Boston, she has shepherded a dramatic shift in the organization’s focus, leading towards greater financial stability and enhanced programmatic outcomes. Sylvia currently serves on the Board of Directors for United Church Funds, the Board of Overseers for the Handel and Haydn Society, and sits on an advisory board for Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Women’s Network.

Kristin joined her first board at age 27 and has been passionately involved in the nonprofit sector since. After accepting the position of Executive Director of the Wenham Museum in September 2012, Kristin led the institution through the completion of a new Strategic Plan and its reaccreditation by the American Alliance of Museums.
