Aisha has over thirty years’ experience as an administrator and entrepreneur in both the nonprofit and for profit sectors. Her expertise ranges from organizational management and project management to financial operations.
Beginning her professional career as an assistant administrator at AIG, NYC, Aisha quickly rose to a senior level position in the Administrative Service Department, managing the $17 million budget for their 12 service departments. Aisha also directed day-to-day financial and administrative operations at Madison Equities, a real estate developer, and Himmel Equities, an estate management firm.
Aisha attended Pace University in NYC and Rutgers University, Newark, NJ, for Management and Education. Having a background in both business and education, Aisha later became the principal of a private nonprofit school with students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Under Aisha’s leadership, the school’s enrollment doubled.
As an entrepreneur, Aisha initiated Abbass/Nuh Associates, providing staffing, administrative support and research development services to small businesses. Differing from the standard employment agency 10 years ago, Aisha marketed the concept of the virtual assistant, administrative support provided outside the confines of a small business’ limited office space.
Aisha’s relationship with Audrey began 20 years ago, when she was hired by Audrey to be a financial assistant at the Liberty Science Center, responsible for monitoring the budgets for all service areas and outreach departments.
For the past 10 years, Aisha has been a member of OMG! as a research and executive assistant. She is also certified in Nonprofit Board Leadership and Nonprofit Financial Management.
Diane is an experienced administrator and customer service professional who has worked with nonprofit organizations in the higher education and community development environments for more than 20 years.
After a handful of years as an associate actuary at a commercial insurance company, Diane realized that her interests aligned more with the nonprofit sector. She began as a volunteer at the Midwood Development Corporation and over a four year period experienced many aspects of community development from coordinating a Brooklyn Crime Prevention Conference which hosted 100 organizations; to managing the publication of a community newspaper distributed to 20,000 homes, to serving as interim executive director.
Diane moved into the higher education sector at The New School, where she was responsible for creating and managing all startup non-clinical operations of its first Student Health Center including the student health insurance program, human resources and financial operations.
After receiving her MS in Nonprofit Management from The New School, Diane moved on to New York University’s Student Health Center, where she implemented and strengthened a global student health insurance program for its 45,000 matriculated students. She left NYU after 14 years of successful collaboration with the University’s clinical staff and senior leadership team, ensuring that the healthcare needs for NYU’s widely diverse student population were handled professionally and equitably.
Before joining the OMG! team, Diane served as part-time interim administrative director at the Support Center for Nonprofit Management in New York City.
