Carrie Previtera is an Associate Partner at New Profit, where she is responsible for lending strategic support to portfolio organizations with a focus on board and leadership development. She currently works with Jumpstart and a set of earlier stage incubation investments. Her work includes CEO and senior team coaching through individual, pair, and team engagements.

Prior to her current role, Carrie held fund management roles throughout New Profit’s portfolio, including with the Early Learning Fund and the Pathways Fund, a public-private partnership with the federal Social Innovation Fund that supported six portfolio organizations focused on pathways to and through post-secondary education and into the workforce.

Carrie began her career in the immigration and refugee resettlement fields, most recently with a consulting firm working to build the capacity of refugee-led community-based organizations in midsize U.S. cities. She is motivated in her work by a passion for human connection first ignited through her work to capture the stories of immigrants to build their legal cases for asylum, domestic violence protection, deportation relief, and family reunification.
