Isabella Hinds, President
Isabella Hinds became a Guardian ad Litem in 2013, just a year after moving to Wilmington from her long time home in Boston. For Isabella, the work of a Guardian ad Litem was in sharp contrast to her career in a series of management roles in operations, policy development, and strategic planning. "It was time to work one on one with a child." Although it's often assumed that a Guardian ad Litem deals only with tragedy, it has been Isabella's experience that just as often it involves watching families step up with remarkable love and compassion to bring a child into their family and finding a way to build trust with each child is a hard, but wonderful challenge. Isabella has also been involved with Kelly House, a residential treatment program for young women with substance use disorder and a new baby, and the Women's Collective Giving Circle of New Hanover County which provide grant opportunitites into the Cape Fear region. Before moving to Wilmington she serve as a senior executive in technology organizations serving the higher education market.
