Rosemary Lombard is the Executive Director. Lombard runs CMBM’s daily operations. Her gift for incubating engagement and cross-cultural understanding has led CMBM to establish partnerships that range from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL where CMBM works at the invitation of the Broward County School Board, to the largest safety-net hospital in Indianapolis, Eskenazi Health, from post-Hurricane disaster Puerto Rico to post-wildfire Sonoma, from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Veteran’s Administration.
Rosemary is an innovator in incubating community and institutional partnerships focused on resilience building, population-wide trauma relief, and improving education systems. Over the last 20 years, she has guided strategic growth and established programs for international nonprofits and mission-based organizations. Equal parts entrepreneurial and collaborative, Rosemary brings a background in finance and international nonprofit development to her work guiding strategic growth.
Rosemary earned her BS in Communication from NYU, her EdM in International Education Policy from Harvard University Graduate School of Education, and her MBA from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. She also holds a 500 hour Yoga Training Certification. When she is not building community resilience programs, Rosemary enjoys life’s adventures with her three young children, and teaches yoga.
