Francesca McCaffery has been working in the non-profit field for over two decades: First working with the Children's Lifesaving Foundation as a program director, COO, then Director of Development, and has additionally worked on the senior administrative staff of Stand-Up for Kids L.A. She is a passionate advocate of providing impactful, creative opportunities for youth in Los Angeles. She was an original volunteer activist with Obama for America in 2008, and continues her political activism to this day with her work with the Grassroots Dems HQ. She graduated from NYU, and has worn many hats creatively throughout her life: Working on films such as Pulp Fiction, and as a producer on short films and videos, she is also a writer currently working on her first novel, and has published articles and film reviews in Adbusters, The Utopianist, Blackbook, and the Malibu Times, among other publications. She is a great lover of design of all types, finds most of her furniture on the street and rehabs it, and has a wellness and creativity site called House and Mind and a similiar podcast, called Sacred Spaces, which she co-hosts with her cousin Cristina Curreri, and which can be found on all podcast platforms. She loves hanging with her terrific niece and nephew, reading and going to the movies (a lot.) She started working with reDiscover Center two weeks prior to the COVID-19 lock-down, and loves the mission of the organization and its sustainability focus, and hopes she can only further its great work into the future.
