Muffy Grant joined NCECF in June 2019. Prior to her role as Executive Director, she was Director of Development at both Prevent Child Abuse NC and the Institute for Child Success in Greenville, SC. Before making a career change by entering the world of child advocacy in 2015, Grant spent the previous decade involved in exchange visitor programs in public/private partnership with the Department of State. Grant has had the good fortune to travel to many countries in support of public diplomacy efforts but believes that diplomacy truly begins early and at home and is happy to be a champion for the children of her native state, North Carolina.
Grant holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Humanistic Studies from Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame and her Master Degree in International Affairs focusing on demographics and labor migration from Georgetown University and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University. She and her husband are stretched, challenged, and filled with gratitude daily in parenting their four children ranging in age from 8 to 2.
