Hallie came to Elevate with a passion for mission-driven organizations and an interest in finance and business. In previous positions, Hallie was motivated by mission-driven work and set her sights on working in the nonprofit sector. Prior to joining the Elevate Operations Team, Hallie worked for the TGR Foundation, A Tiger Woods Charity, as a Fund Development intern — where she was introduced to her colleagues at Elevate. She has also worked with Olympic athletes as a Communications Intern at USA Water Polo and as a Corporate Partnerships intern with the Los Angeles Football Club for several months.

Hallie earned her BS in Business Administration from Chapman University in Southern California. She also tacked on a Philosophy minor. In college, Hallie played NCAA softball for one year.

As a new DC resident from the Pacific Northwest, Hallie enjoys exploring the city hopping from coffee shop to restaurant rooftop to museum to bookstore to a baseball game. With a love for all holidays, you can count on Hallie to keep the office decorated for all occasions!
