Maria Schell Hassid, MBA

Maria Schell Hassid, MBA

Director of Operations and Talent at Magical Bridge Foundation

Oakland, California

I am a systems thinker who loves to solve problems in scaling, mission-based organizations during periods of transitions and growth.

All too often in nonprofits, work is evaluated by its intent and purpose, without considering it quality of the process that generated the work, or the work's long-term impact. When dedicated, mission-driven people, don't have the ability to see real impact, it creates drag for the whole organization. In a professional setting, my greatest joy comes from establishing and leveraging systems and processes that create efficiency and allow others to shine.

Key skills include strategy, budgeting, project management, Human Resources, finance, public speaking, compliance.
