Reshma will help make LION more efficient and sustainable by supporting financial management, people operations, and administration.
As our membership and staff numbers have grown, so has the complexity of our behind-the-scenes “mission support” operations. We’re so excited to welcome Reshma to LION as our first Finance & Operations Manager, a role that will help us continue to grow sustainably and compliantly. Her work will include:
- Proactively ensuring compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws
- Improving and overseeing onboarding and offboarding processes for staff and board members
- Ensuring consistent financial data across internal systems
Reshma, an east coast native (New York & New Jersey) and current Philadelphia resident, joins LION after serving as Partnerships Associate at Benefits Data Trust where she owned project management for multiple programmatic contracts. Reshma is passionate about social justice and has extensive experience in nonprofit program management, project management, and technical consulting.
To round her out, Reshma loves food, health, and wellness! Reshma is a trained yoga instructor, has experience as a line cook, and enjoys rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, and pickleball! In her free time, Reshma focuses on her well-being, often going on long walks and exploring something new.
