Teresa LaMaster is the Center’s Interim Development Team Lead. In this role, she is responsible for guiding and supporting the team in responsibilities with funders as well as preparing for the transition to a new Vice President for Development.

She led the Center’s operations and legal functions and was responsible for leading groups through several key projects, including the build-out and move to the Center’s current space, management’s recognition of the Center union and management-side bargaining for its first contract, and launching the Center’s early racial equity and inclusion initiative.
