So is part of Schultz & Williams’ strategic planning team and is responsible for assisting our consultants on projects that aid a variety of nonprofit work. Her responsibilities include serving as a point of contact and an intermediary between S&W consultants and clients and contributing to strategic planning steps for successful project completions.

So’s interest in shaping and implementing policy led her to begin her work in the nonprofit sector. She believes that working with a compassionate group like S&W will open her eyes to a more structural view on how organizations can perform better to serve our communities to the fullest.

Prior Experience

Before joining S&W, So worked for a nonprofit that serves vulnerable immigrant seniors in five different counties in Pennsylvania. There, she was part of multiple departments, including development, social services, and communications. Since 2018, So has also served as an assistant manager at a nonprofit that focuses on distributing children’s books to low-income schools in West Philadelphia and connecting students with authors/illustrators who base their work on important social issues.

Before moving to Philadelphia, So worked as a researcher at Cornell University for five years developing questionnaires and programming surveys, as well as collecting and analyzing local and national data via interviews and focus groups for final reports that were used for key organizations, both in the private sector and the government.
