Isabella Cass

Program Manager

Isabella (Izzie) Cass is an evaluator, data analyst, grant writer, and systems change professional. Her work is driven by a desire to apply resourcefulness, creativity, and efficiency to projects impacting structural inequities, particularly prison reform. As a volunteer in 2021, she drafted a grant which empowered DABC to move forward as a fully-funded 501(c)3 organization when it was awarded in 2022. She focuses on proposal writing, grant management, monitoring and evaluation, qualitative and quantitative data analytics, and program coordination for equity-focused nonprofits. In her position as a Program Coordinator for a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, she developed a culturally-responsive evaluation and programming framework for projects for American Indians with disabilities. Izzie earned a Master of Arts in International Policy and Development with a Monitoring, Evaluation, and Design specialization from the Monterey Institute of International Studies. She currently lives in Flagstaff, Arizona at the base of mountains on homelands sacred to Native Americans throughout the region, who have lived here for millennia and will forever call it home. You can find Izzie teaching swing dance classes during the week, and competing at Lindy Hop events on the weekends.
