Before coming to HIP, Ana Marie was a senior advisor at the Ford Foundation where she worked on urban development strategies to expand economic opportunity and advance sustainability across the world. She also spent eight years as a senior program officer at the Annie E. Casey Foundation where she spearheaded the foundation’s work in rural areas, indigenous communities, and the US-Mexico border region. Ana Marie’s successful track record working across a broad range of capacities — adjunct professor at New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service, educational programs manager at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, director of the New Workplace for Women Project at the National Council of La Raza (now UnidosUS), and deputy director of Ayuda, a legal clinic serving immigrants in Washington, DC — marks a professional trajectory as an entrepreneurial thinker bridging diverse agendas and achieving results.
In addition to her career spanning philanthropy, academia and the nonprofit sectors, Ana Marie was appointed to serve in the federal government during two Presidential Administrations. Most recently as Deputy Chief of Staff at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development where she created the Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation to scale collaboration between the public and philanthropic sectors. That model of sourcing innovation and leveraging partnerships from broad global networks is now being successfully replicated at other federal cabinet agencies.
Ana Marie has been recognized for her creativity and bold vision with numerous awards. She currently serves on the boards of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, CANDID, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, PoderLatinx, and the Santa Fe Community Foundation.
She received her master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University and her bachelor’s degree in international relations from American University.
She divides her time between Santa Fe, NM and Washington DC. In her free time you’ll often find her out hiking with her husband Rodger Boyd; hanging out with her daughter Alexia or at the beach with her family in Puerto Rico.
