Cherish is passionate about bringing awareness and social and economic change to underrepresented communities, particularly for women in New York. She credits her mom for her lifelong dedication for helping others and feels inspired to continually give back to her community. Her experience as an intern at Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders, Ubuntu Pathways and Give2Get has allowed her to utilize different techniques to ignite donors and sponsors as advocates for varying organizations. She also has experience with fundraising events and cultivating long-lasting relationships between a non-profit organization and donors. In the same manner, she understands how an in-person or virtual fundraising event can greatly contribute to the organization’s mission and fundraising goals. Her creative and detail oriented nature allows her to execute successful fundraising events that keep people engaged from start to finish. Cherish brings this energy to the Wingo NYC special events team and our clients.
Cherish hails from southern California and moved to the New York/ New Jersey area to earn a BA and MA in Diplomacy and International Relations from Seton Hall University. In her free time, she enjoys binge watching a good TV show, planning new adventures, and cuddling up with her cat.
