Lung Association Welcomes Carrie Nash As Greater Bay Area Executive Director

(December 5, 2018) - OAKLAND, Calif.

The American Lung Association in California is pleased to welcome Carrie Nash as Executive Director for the Greater Bay Area office responsible for the entire Northern California area.

Carrie brings more than 16 years’ experience in management and fund development to her position at the Lung Association. Starting her career in the communications and marketing fields, she worked for a number of fortune 500 corporate enterprises in a progressive range of roles. Noticing there was more to life than corporate sales and management, Carrie was drawn to the non-profit sector with stints at Meristem and White Pony express among others focusing on community development, workforce development, social issues, health development, sustainability and advocacy. Her current position marks a return to the American Lung Association in California where she previously served more than five years, reaching the Statewide Director of Development and Strategic Initiatives position.

As Executive Director, Carrie is responsible for increasing Lung Association mission activities and growing the region’s fundraising and volunteer engagement efforts. She assumes the role of lead staff for the organization’s Northern California efforts and will build and work with the area’s Leadership Board to serve all those affected by lung disease.

Carrie looks forward to returning the Lung Association and continuing her career goal of improving the lives of all those in need through its mission to save lives by preventing lung disease and promoting lung health.
