Announcement: Staff Transition


It is with great gratitude and excitement that I announce the transition of two of FGA’s talented professionals, Andrew Brown and Kristina Ribali, to help scale up our sister charity, FlourishNow. Earlier this year, I worked with a team of entrepreneurs to create an organization that would showcase a non-governmental approach to helping people in need, out of which was born FlourishNow. It exists to connect volunteers with families in crisis, helping them get back on their feet and get back to work.

FlourishNow was piloted so successfully in Southwest Florida that new opportunities opened up to expand to cities across the country. I could think of no better people to help lead that expansion than Andrew Brown and Kristina Ribali, who are serving as FlourishNow’s Executive Vice President and Vice President of Strategic Outreach, respectively.

Both Andrew and Kristina have been integral to FGA’s growth and success over the last several years and I cannot thank them enough for their dedication, passion, and enthusiasm for the mission of FGA and the work they do on a daily basis. I look forward to experiencing their future success with FlourishNow and witnessing the impact they are already making on the people of Southwest Florida and beyond.

If you have any questions or would like to reach out to Kristina or Andrew, please feel free to contact them at FlourishNow. I know they look forward to hearing from you.
