In addition to being the founder and Chief 'Fun' Officer at THM, Ngozika is a passionate nonprofit professional and content creator with more than ten years of experience working in a variety of communications roles. Currently, she serves as the Community Engagement Manager with Network for Good's Jumpstart program, which is an immersive, yearlong program focused on supporting small-but-mighty nonprofits by providing them with the integrated tools, plan, and one-on-one coaching required to increase fundraising capacity, diversify revenue, and sustain their missions.
Born in Enugu, Nigeria and raised in Cheverly, Maryland, Ngozika moved back to the Washington, DC area after spending seven years in Los Angeles working in the fashion, ecommerce, and behavioral health industries for organizations like HauteLook, BCBGMAXAZRIA, and Verdugo Hills Autism Project. Prior to moving west, she attended Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art. Ngozika also holds a master’s degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology and a Master of Science in Medical Humanities and Bioethics from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
When she’s not at her day job, Ngozika keeps herself busy by producing THM's podcast, Questioning Everything, serving as the Graphics/Website Manger for the Communications Committee on the board of the DC chapter of the national women-focused environmental group, EcoWomen, and preparing THM for its official launch this year. During breaks between those projects, Ngozika can be found hiking trails throughout the greater Washington area, finishing up an art piece or painting, or trying out some standup comedy at a local open mic (in the 'before times' of course). Ngozika also enjoys meeting new people and welcomes the opportunity to make connections via LinkedIn.
