Moira Guidon - Growth Manager

In another life, Moira, growth manager and organizational guru for Kaci is pretty sure she was a Broadway performer.  She loves listening to music, making music, talking with friends, going for walks, hiking, and playing board games with her husband. 

If she wasn’t so darn good at keeping the team at Kaci on track, managing all things social media and marketing, communicating with the team about tasks and schedules, assisting with grants, publishing the website, etc, she would probably be a member of an epic band, playing epic music. Clearly, she has a desire to perform!

When she is not working, she is busy creating upcycled paper envelopes to sell on her Etsy shop (@MoiraSylviShop) and considers her biggest career/work-related accomplishments selling her cards to a florist shop, and getting hired to letter a cafe’s menu on their wall.  This year she designed a unique hanging Christmas card for one of our Kaci clients, Sanctuary Mental Health, which was very well received. Other talents at Kaci include her organizational skills and excellent communication skills.

After graduating high school, Moira travelled to Queensland, Australia, to do a 6 month school with an organization called YWAM. She fell in love with Australia, the language, culture and the organization and ended up staying for 7 years! During that time she had the opportunity to take trips to Indonesia, India, Nepal, Myanmar, and Thailand, as well as an aide trip to the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. Those 7 years changed her life.  “I met my husband, I became a beach person, and that little slice of heaven in Queensland will always have my heart.” 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

8 years of leadership and team management as well as 3 years of registrar experience using CRM software including Salesforce and Zoho are some of the credentials that have prepared her for working in this current position. 

“The most inspiring part of my job is that  I love how  I can use my skills to help nonprofits and small businesses raise money for their cause. The clients we work with are awesome!”
