Meet our Fearless Leader!

We are all fortunate that Evelyn created this dynamic community in Sacramento and connected us to the local nonprofits. Check out our interview to get to know some fun facts about Evelyn! 

Why did I start our Impact100 Chapter: Impact100 Greater Sacramento is a huge win for the nonprofits of Sacramento. I wanted to bring something positive to the community. There are so many nonprofits in our area. We will give them a chance to dream big!

Favorite Restaurants: I love to eat out! I love Brasserie du Monde, Matteos and the Firehouse and Ellas for special occasions.

Hobbies: Gardening is my zen time. I try to spend time with friends as often as possible. Travel is at the top of my list. And I love to play blackjack!

Favorite Aspect about Impact100: Meeting such incredible women is one of the things that drives me to help develop and build our Impact100 chapter. 

Something about me: I was born and raised in Sacramento. I have worked with nonprofits for more than 30 years. My husband and I have five cats!

Each month we will feature a new member in our Member Spotlight… stay tuned!
