Barbara Wanasek

Operations Lead

I lead grants and financial management and oversee our technology needs and overall operations.

Most rewarding moment since joining Einhorn Collaborative
Many moments of pushing myself to be more open, curious, and vulnerable with the people and communities in my life.

Something people may not know about me
I love modern art and love to find art, beauty, awe in everyday life.

Something that inspires me
I love the poem “The Guest House” by Jelaluddin Rumi. It inspires me to open up to a full range of emotions, especially tough ones, and find useful ways to express them through art, poetry, singing, and just talking.

Before Einhorn Collaborative
I lived and studied abroad in Australia, France, and Russia and worked in international education and exchanges for over 20 years. In my last role before Einhorn Collaborative, I served as grants manager for the Ford Foundation International Fellowship Program.
