Xan began her work at IINE as the Community Services Coordinator at the Boston site in 2008. In her first week on the job, Xan greeted a Nepali family of five at Logan Airport, which cemented her passion for welcoming refugees and working to support immigrant rights and lives.

Over the past several years, Xan has focused on strengthening and expanding IINE’s continuum of direct support services to immigrants by building partnerships with organizations, employers, funders, and communities at each IINE site. Her work has helped IINE advance as a regional leader in immigrant integration work. In her current role as Chief Program and Institutional Giving Officer, Xan manages IINE’s program strategy, quality, and resource development, and she oversees IINE’s grant and contract management team and the Managing Directors of its three sites in Boston and Lowell, MA and Manchester, NH. Xan works regionally and visits IINE communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire each week.
Prior to IINE, Xan provided behavioral health services and worked in family and children’s direct care and crisis support in Iowa, Tennessee, and Massachusetts.
