Emily Benham, FAHP, CFRE

At Nonprofit Leadership Center. . . I champion the good work of all of the nonprofits of the Tampa Bay area. The Nonprofit Leadership Center empowers nonprofits to achieve their best. I am excited to learn of someone's latest success or biggest challenge. In my view, it is always an opportunity.

When I am not at work. . . you will most likely find me at the barn, riding my 12-year-old horse, Current Affair. Training an off the track thoroughbred in the nuances of classical dressage has absolutely strengthened my negotiating skills and honed my practice of conflict resolution.

My favorite class at the Nonprofit Leadership Center is. . .I’d have to say the CEO Forum. It is exciting to see CEOs in the region connect and share best practices. I enjoy processes that uncover pathways to connect and inspire our collective work.

My mantra is. . . cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Every day. In all that you do.

Customer service is my specialty! I also do the accounting and keep our shelves stocked with office supplies.  How can I assist you today?

My favorite class at the Nonprofit Leadership Center is. . . The Nonprofit Financial Management Certificate is my favorite because it provides the tools needed to manage finances and focus on best practices.

My mantra is. . . focus on the positive!

Jennifer Davis Dodd
Director of Education & Communications

At Nonprofit Leadership Center. . . I plan, implement, and promote our training curricula. My goal is to help increase the capacity of nonprofits across Tampa Bay to serve and improve our community.

When I'm not at work. . . I like to explore and travel, to find the beauty in every day. Locally, my husband and I like to explore communities through their markets, fairs, and other community events. We also operate a small business in St. Pete.

My favorite class at Nonprofit Leadership Center is. . . the Certificate in Volunteer Management. I love how this in-depth training equips Tampa Bay nonprofits to involve volunteers in their mission.

My mantra is. . . Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Tuesdi Dyer, CFRE
Director of Strategic Solutions

At Nonprofit Leadership Center. . . I get excited by being able help non-profits conquer challenges – big or small. Creating custom solutions for each organization’s unique needs increases our already amazing non-profit leaders’ capacity to make lasting and monumental progress in our community.

When I am not at work. . . you will find me playing with my two amazing boys. I love how much my time with them truly transforms my life in ways I never thought possible.

My favorite class at the Nonprofit Leadership Center is. . . Board Governance is my favorite training element of the Nonprofit Leadership Center. The roles and responsibilities of board members are so important. I love how the training program really helps members realize their potential to transform lives in the organizations they serve.

My mantra is. . . A quote I love from Abraham Lincoln – “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

Laurel Westmoreland
Education Associate

At Nonprofit Leadership Center. . . There is a positive staff culture unlike anything I’ve experienced in my career—even in other nonprofits. I am so excited to learn from this amazing group of women and to grow as both a nonprofit professional and as a human being.

When I am not at work… I stay busy as a mom to an amazing little boy and his dog. We like to spend time with family and friends, go to the beach, dog park or the people park for all kinds of soccer-related fun.

My favorite class at the Nonprofit Leadership Center is. . . Work, Interrupted with Margarita Sarmiento who is awesome!  But I also can’t wait to take anything John Loblack teaches. His students are so engaged and have so much fun in there I sometimes get jealous!

My mantra is. . . 99 is not 100. Anything we can contribute to our community or the world, no matter how small, makes a difference. (This came from a documentary about making art out of trash and recyclables in Brazil.) And my other one is kindness, kindness, kindness. (This actually came from a concert I attended in my youth. The lead singer walked right through the crowd, who would mob him under normal circumstances, up to the stage undisturbed, chanting kindness, kindness, kindness. Kindness is apparently contagious.)
