Development Director: Erin Kokdil
As the Development Director for Maya Traditions Foundation, Erin is responsible for the organization's focus on fundraising, program development, and communications. Before joining us at Maya Traditions, Erin volunteered and worked for a variety of non-profit organizations in the United States, Argentina, and Guatemala, teaching her much about sustainable development projects and the minority populations in those areas. Erin holds a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language & Literature and Latin American Studies from Smith College. She first traveled to Guatemala in 2011 as a volunteer and returned in 2012 to live and work permanently. Through her experience in non-profits and her commitment to working towards the mission of Maya Traditions, Erin hopes to ensure sustainability of the foundation and that the vision of founder Jane Mintz continues to be realized.
