Meet the AAR's Newest Staff Member: Nicholé Jefferson


We are very pleased to welcome Nicholé Jefferson to the AAR staff as Director of Finance and Administration. Nicholé brings to our organization more than 20 years of experience in nonprofit management, finance, human resources, administrative operations, and facilities management. Before joining the AAR in February of 2019, Nicholé worked with DC- and Atlanta-area human service organizations that focused on increasing the social and economic stability of at-risk and underserved populations. Nicholé will be responsible for oversight of the AAR’s financial and administrative operations, including financial reporting, budgeting, serving as the HR liaison with Emory University, and ensuring efficiency of internal operations to support the staff.

A native of the Washington DC metro area, Nicholé relocated to Georgia in 2010. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Human Resources and, when not working, enjoys spending time with family and friends and going on long road trips. She is also the mom to one son and two "fur babies."

We are very excited to have Nicholé on the AAR team and look forward to the ways her leadership and experience will strengthen our service to members and the field. Welcome Nicholé!
