Shari Bridges, MBA

Director of Philanthropy

A California native, Shari moved to the Las Vegas Valley in 2015 and is enjoying the contrast between life at the beach, and desert living. For over 15 years, she has had the privilege of engaging and building relationships with donors, volunteers, and board members while raising millions of dollars for the ‘greater good.’ 

Shari has a passion for serving the organization that is just starting out, merging, in the midst of change, or otherwise stuck. Having been a business owner, she readily sees the ‘big picture,’ and is able to create and execute a business strategy that directly improves the organization’s bottom line.

In addition to experience, Shari received an MBA in Nonprofit Leadership with Honors, and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.Sc. in Human and Social Services Administration – both degrees adding a scholarly foundation to her work. She is nearing the dissertation phase of a PhD in Mind-Body Medicine and in her spare time, loves to share Mind-Body skills practices with groups and individuals. She also enjoys giving Reiki sessions and coaching people towards greater health and happiness.
