Shift and ScaffoldJanice Chan never was able to pick one thing to be when she grew up. While grown up status could be debated, what she currently does is consult (shiftandscaffold.com), teach data management in NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Professional Certificate Program, and co-organize NTEN’s Nonprofits and Data online community group. She is also is working towards a Master of Information Management at the University of Maryland.
Originally from New York, Janice arrived south of the Mason-Dixon Line via St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Post-graduation, Janice served as an AmeriCorps*VISTA before officially joining the nonprofit sector. She has worn hats in data management, volunteer management, marketing and communications, grant writing, curriculum development, program management, technical training, change management, and project management.
In short, Janice has spent 11+ years and counting leading the messy work of organizing and restructuring information so that teams can work together more effectively and focus on their missions. She also enjoys writing, traveling, making playlists, and figuring out how we could do this better. You can find her on Twitter @curiositybone.
