Cheyenne Wolf, a Central New Jersey native, brings a wealth of experience and a passion for non-profit development to her role as Development Coordinator.
A graduate of Hightstown High School, Class of ’09, Cheyenne’s academic journey began when she was awarded the merit-based ‘NJ STARS’ scholarship, affording her studies at Mercer County Community College. In 2011, she earned her Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts, becoming the first in her family to graduate college. In 2013, she graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology from William Paterson University.
In 2014, Cheyenne embarked on her nonprofit journey as a Development Associate for People & Stories-Gente y Cuentos, Inc., a small-but-mighty organization based in New Jersey. Recognizing her dedication and grit, she quickly ascended the ranks, being promoted to Grants and Programs Manager in early 2016. Her passion for the organization’s mission and her ability to drive results led to her appointment as Executive Director in the fall of 2018.
Under Cheyenne’s guidance, People & Stories-Gente y Cuentos, Inc. thrived, making significant strides in donor engagement and development strategy. Her servant leadership style reshaped the workplace culture and drove the organization’s outsized success during the pandemic and through April 2023.
Cheyenne’s journey from a first-generation college student to an accomplished Executive Director exemplifies her intellectual curiosity and her passion for philanthropic work. She is excited to begin her next chapter as a member of the Dravet Syndrome Foundation’s Donor Engagement team!
