Nissa Nagel

I moved to Boise in 1999 drawn by the friendliness of the community, the beauty of the foothills, and the abundance of natural places for outdoor adventure. Often, I say, I left my heart in the Sawtooths and not in San Francisco where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from San Francisco State University. I met my husband Bob in downtown Boise where he was often found on the weekends playing bass in local bands. We live with our 7-year-old son Oliver and his furry heeler sister Annabelle. We love to be outdoors camping, fishing, and canoeing. When Oliver was a baby, I began providing bookkeeping and small business operations services to a handful of clients so that I could be home with him. During that time I had the amazing opportunity to work with Story Story Night and was part of the team that transitioned the organization to non-profit status. When Oliver began first grade and I had the opportunity to rejoin the workforce I found myself drawn to the non-profit sector. I am so thrilled to join the Giraffe Laugh team as a bookkeeper. I find endless satisfaction knowing that my work hours are spent helping create the kind of future I want for my son and his peers.
