We are so incredibly excited to introduce you to Soft Landing Missoula’s newest team member- Maria Netzloff! Maria has joined us as our Donor Engagement and Impact Director and she will not only be helping us keep the lights on and keep growing our client-driven programming, but will also be helping us to be more thoughtful about our growth and how to keep bringing all of you along with us to support this great work- as you have done for 4 years now!
Maria has been working in the field of fundraising since 2012 and holds a certificate in Nonprofit Administration as well as a BA in Spanish from the University of Montana. She served as an Americorps Vista in Austin, Texas and has recently spent her last 6 years in Missoula dedicated to other incredible nonprofit fundraising. She enjoys music (playing/listening to), appreciating or making art (but mostly its just pushing paint around), cooking, tending her garden, dancing, enjoying Montana and all it has to offer (hiking, swimming, camping, staying in fire lookout towers), cross country skiing, hosting a Spanish conversation group, reading books, playing with words/ pun-making, trying to solve crossword puzzles, planning adventures, and bringing people together. She will fit right in!
Maria has been a JOY to have in the office and many of you have had the chance to say hi already. Incase you haven’t met her yet, feel free to stop by and say hi! You are in for a treat ;)
