Nicole Oddo

United We Dream

Nicole is US Citizen and was raised in both liberal San Francisco, California and conservative Richmond, Virginia. The experiences of growing up in two dichotomous cities, with a multicultural ethnicity, while often living below the poverty level, has made Nicole acutely aware of racial, gender, ethnic, sexual and class identities in the United States. After earning an Accounting degree from Virginia Tech and becoming a licensed CPA, Nicole joined Make the Road New York as their Director of Finance & Human Resources and later served as their CFO. She is passionate about building power for working class communities and achieving dignity and justice for immigrants and other vulnerable members of society.
