Nadia joined MPR|APM in 2018. She spent the first six years of her career in media planning and strategy but longed for work that allowed her to develop deeper connections and relationships. In 2016, she transitioned into non-profit development work as an associate regional development officer at the University of Minnesota Foundation. There, she helped grow The U’s footprint and cultivate alumni connections in the Bay Area, Pacific Northwest and the Dakotas. At MPR|APM, she focuses on connecting donors to their areas of passion within the organization, from The Current to News and podcasts. She grew up in Michigan, Washington state, and Iowa, and is a graduate of the University of Michigan with degrees in political science and biological anthropology.
