Born and raised in Sacramento, Evelyn learned at an early age from her philanthropic parents the importance of giving back to the community. She continues to be a strong believer in volunteerism. Focusing on fund development, she has been actively involved raising money and awareness for numerous nonprofits in the Sacramento area for over 30 years.

The Impact100 model deeply resonates with Evelyn, especially the idea of bringing together a group of philanthropic women to pool their financial resources, talents and contacts to make a transformational difference in their community. With her vast network, skills and years of experience, Evelyn brings solid leadership to the Impact100 Greater Sacramento chapter in her role as CEO.

Now retired, she enjoys her zen time working in her yard, spending time with her husband and spoiling her five cats.
