Sally Haims is passionate about sharing stories to help mission-driven organizations raise awareness that drives engagement. She began her professional life at age 12 by pitching journalists to cover events at St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Alameda. There she had the pivotal experience, like many lucky Bay Area youth of volunteering at St. Anthony’s Dining Room. She is very excited to be back to help continue spreading the word about the Foundation’s compassionate work helping guests to develop the skills to build stability.
Although her backhand is not the weapon it once was, she played tennis for U.C. San Diego and graduated with a degree in Mass Media Communications. Her career spans the private, nonprofit, and public sectors where she managed communications for Daughters of Charity, The Salvation Army Golden State Division, The Body Shop: Americas Region, New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services, and the New York State Senate majority leader.
She lives in San Francisco with her husband and two dancing goldfish, Fred & Ginger.
