(she/her) Lucy Aghadjian has worked with Akonadi Foundation since its inception 20 years ago. She brings many years of financial, human resource and administrative management to the table and has been fortunate to watch the Foundation evolve from a good idea to a philanthropic institution in Oakland with a growing staff and local mission. She works closely with the President, the staff and a team of professionals ensuring full compliance, administrative housekeeping and sound fiscal management.
Lucy has two professional lives – she serves Akonadi Foundation, as well as the founders and board in matters of money and human resources. She also has a small catering business which until these pandemic times, allowed her to express her love of food, feeding people and our Bay Area bounty. As a first-generation daughter of an Armenian father and an English mother, food was an important part of her upbringing.
Having grown up in southern California, Lucy came to Berkeley in 1983 to attend UC Berkeley, and like so many others, chose to settle in the Bay Area. Her loves include hot weather, summer fruit, running, writing, the beach and of course, all farmer’s markets. She holds a B.A. in Political Science and continues to be schooled every day by the many wise and inspiring people in her professional and personal community, including her 22-year-old son.
