Prior to working at XPRIZE, Ariana had experience partnering with non-profit groups for the last 10 years. She began her journey in charitable work with Meals on Wheels, from there she became a Coordinator of Volunteers to a Public Relations Manager for various organizations. After 5 years of working in corporate banking, Ariana decided to pivot towards giving back to her local community, taking on nonprofit experience full time and turning her passion and hobby into a full-fledged career. At XPRIZE, she wants to use her wealth of experience making small scale impact on a global scale for marginalized voices around the world.
In her free time, Ariana loves international cuisine, music festivals and reading.
