Ingrid has great faith in the potential and creativity of the philanthropic sector to build and improve human connections and communities. She believes in the power of a good story, clearly told, and she relishes helping clients access the resources that bring their dreams to fruition. In her four years at Westby Associates she has written grants that have raised over $3 million, and she enjoys the matchmaking work that brings community-spirited investors and local nonprofits together. Her life outside of work includes homeschooling, practicing alternative medicine, and a blended family with five children. Needless to say, multi-tasking is a daily practice!
