cvheadshotNext Stage is pleased to announce that Caylin Viales has joined the firm as Associate.

In December 2016, Next Stage Consulting launched a search for an Associate to support the firm’s client services including strategic planning, resource development and organizational development. After a search process that yielded more than 80 applicant submissions, it was clear to Next Stage’s Managing Director Josh Jacobson that Caylin Viales was the right person for the job.

“Caylin brings to Next Stage an intellectual curiosity and understanding of nonprofit best practices that will serve the firm’s clients well,” said Jacobson. “She possesses a great combination of project management experience with a desire to strengthen the nonprofit sector.”

Before relocating to Charlotte, Caylin worked as a Program Associate with the GreenLight Fund, a philanthropic organization with roots in the venture capital community. Over a three year tenure, she supported the selection and launch of five high-performing national organizations in Philadelphia.

Prior to GreenLight, Caylin spent six months as a fellow at the national consulting firm Frontline Solutions, working with the Philadelphia office in their efforts to enhance the impact of nonprofit and public sector programs.

Caylin received her BA in Urban Studies from Bryn Mawr College and spent her freshman year in Costa Rica, where she researched the role of gender in community development while working for the Costa Rican Humanitarian Foundation. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring Charlotte with her husband, Jean, and their dog, Nacho.
