Building lasting relationships


By cultivating networks, co-curating programs and learning opportunities, engaging key stakeholders, and focusing on “people,” Camellia aims to grow and sustain a robust and global alumni community. She believes in the leadership of our Atlantic Fellows. She is here to support these change-makers and equity-advancers.


Camellia brings extensive experience from the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors in international human rights, network and relationship building, program design, and funding. She managed communities of stakeholders in her nonprofit work, advanced strategic partnerships at the Sandler Foundation and Open Society Foundations, and conducted research and outreach with social justice organizations in New York, San Francisco, and Sierra Leone.


Camellia's work creates and curates learning, funding, and networking opportunities for Atlantic Fellows offered through GBHI, the Atlantic Institute, and other global partners. This amplifies the innovative, creative, and courageous efforts of our alumni spearheading equity in brain health.
