Arielle Diaz

Operations & Events Manager

Arielle Diaz creates systems that keep NACSA’s Chicago office running efficiently and effectively. She is the point person for all things related to the office and is responsible for its day-to-day operations.

Before NACSA, Arielle worked as an executive assistant at Petros Estate & Retirement Planning and Woman’s Worth, two financial planning companies in Jacksonville, FL. She was also actively recruited for a management position at a startup doughnut shop, where she exercised her love of customer experience and doughnut tasting.

Arielle earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a focus in management from the University of North Florida.

She recognizes an excellent education is something many are privileged to receive, but not everyone has that same privilege. Arielle is inspired by NACSA’s mission to address this issue head-on and is excited at the opportunity to change the lives of millions of children through quality and accessibility.

In her free time, Arielle enjoys exploring the city, discovering new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.
