He will also work closely with the Communications team to disseminate community and partner anecdotes and stories via digital formats across the Foundation’s channels and audiences.
Randy knows that prioritizing healing in the Foundation’s work is what deepens its relationship with its communities, and opens the possibility to do work that heals community members.
Upon joining the Healthy Communities Foundation, he was inspired by the Foundation’s trust-based philanthropic approach which prioritizes the voices of community and how it can collectively support its efforts and values to care for one another.
Randy worked at past nonprofits that focus on eldercare, Asian American advocacy, and immigration rights, including the Council for Jewish Elderly Senior Life and the Korean American Resource and Cultural Center. He is currently a board member with the National Cambodian Heritage Museum and Killing Fields Memorial. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Illinois at Chicago and is currently working towards his Master’s degree in Nonprofit Management at DePaul University.
