Morgen Humes started her career in the organizational psychology department of an international technology company. Next, she was a founding employee for a small management consulting start-up. In keeping with her abiding passion for supporting organizations that make a positive social impact, she left the for-profit world to go back to school to earn her Master’s in Social Welfare, Management and Planning, from UC Berkeley (2000). She then worked as an independent nonprofit consultant and, later, project coordinator for a federal wraparound demonstration project.
During the following seven years, Morgen was part of the executive leadership team of Seneca Family of Agencies, which serves vulnerable children and families. As the director of Training and Research and the Co-Director of Strategic Initiatives at Seneca she managed several large training contracts, helped write successful grants and developed collaborative relationships with community, county, and state partners. In addition to bringing excellent experience to any endeavor, she brings a positive attitude as well as a natural inclination to accomplish goals and solve problems creatively.
Throughout her working life, she always found time to volunteer. She continues this tradition as the development committee chair for the board of directors of Alameda County Crisis Support Services, a board member for FOGG Theatre Company and the School Site Council chair for Yick Wo Elementary School in San Francisco. Not long after the birth of her second child, she began consulting again in order to better integrate her passion for supporting the work of nonprofits with motherhood and her dedication to community involvement.
