Rachel Kahn started as the Director of Finance and Operations in December 2015. She joins TLC with over 20 years’ experience in nonprofit and small business finance and administration. Her nonprofit career started with volunteering at the Northern California Coalition for Immigrant rights, where she kept fixing computers and making spreadsheets until they hired her. Over the next six years, she facilitated the agency’s expansion from 8 to 22 people, spread out in four offices. She spent the next 10 years in San Francisco Chinatown as the Director of Administration and Finance at Chinese for Affirmative Action, where she helped launch Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality and sponsored API Equality. Most recently she’s worked as a consultant and interim manager, and comes to TLC from Oakland neighbor CoreAlign, which works to bring culture change to the reproductive health, rights and justice movement. She still enjoys helping to make things work well, which to her means promoting efficiency while supporting the efforts and wellbeing of the employees at the heart of any effective organization.
She lives in the Mission with her two ancient cats.
