Next Stage is thrilled to announce that we have a brand new team member, as Haley Rafferty joins as our Team Success Manager!

Haley comes highly recommended as an organized, thoughtful leader who is skilled at operations and development. We couldn’t be more excited to have her here (wish her luck as she tries to keep us in line!). 

Haley has deep experience in the social good world, having worked for years in Charlotte-based arts and science organizations, including tenures at both Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts. Her passion for social good, alongside her strong organizational and management skills, will strengthen Next Stage’s organization and operations, positioning us for greater growth in the months and years ahead. 

She has lived most of her life in North Carolina, including graduating from Elon University, and considers the state to be home. Haley was lucky to live in Belgium for several years, where she met her husband. She enjoys spending time with her two cats, fostering kittens, reading mystery novels and being outside. 

Please join us in welcoming Haley to the team!
