Victory Reese

Victory assists the senior director across all areas of his work and manages NoVo’s office in Kingston, New York. There, she supports NoVo’s initiatives in the areas of Social and Emotional Learning, Local Living Economies, and Indigenous Communities.

Prior to joining NoVo, Victory was a proud AmeriCorps member volunteering with amazing nonprofits across the US. It was through her work with New York City Civic Corps at Brooklyn Community Foundation, City Year Los Angeles, and Habitat for Humanity NYC that showed her the true transformational power that comes when caring individuals stand together to make a real impact. In those and other positions held, Victory worked with diverse teams of talented people to build capacity for organizations, promote volunteerism, and train youth to be knowledge-seekers and change-makers.

After hours, you can usually find Victory volunteering for local organizations, perfecting a website, and/or singing anywhere and for anyone that will allow her to.
