The Community Foundation for Nantucket staff is a friendly, dynamic and comprehensive team devoted to supporting Nantucket’s nonprofit sector through grants, guidance, education and collaborations.
Sunny Daily, Executive Director (email@example.com). Sunny moved to Nantucket from Kansas in 2003 with two young children, her husband, and a dream. Working part time and homeschooling her children for a number of years, she was the volunteer La Leche League leader for 15 years. As her children grew, she went on to become an internationally certified childbirth educator and a certified birth doula working with expectant families. She continued volunteering with different organizations and furthered her education. She loves working with families and works as a midwife and call EMT(B).
Prior to joining the Foundation, she was the site director for Health Imperative’s Island clinic, a local nonprofit that offers sexual and reproductive health services to all genders, WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) nutritional support, and young parents support services. She worked not only to increase the number of families accessing the clinic’s services but built the organization’s capacity to receive competitive grant awards while increasing community outreach. She joined the Foundation in 2022 and brings her incredible energy and a desire to make a difference. She hopes to help bring about growth within our organization and new program opportunities for our Island’s nonprofit organizations.
Sunny enjoys walking the countless conservation trails with her NISHA dog Stella and her husband Greg and watching her grown children thrive.
Diana Harrison, Operations Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org). Diana was born in Lithuania. She graduated from Kaunas College with the degree in the Technology and Engineering of Fermentation. Diana moved to the U.S. in 2002, visited Nantucket for a summer, and has been living on-island full-time since 2004. While on Nantucket, she worked as the office manager for Geronimo’s, Cold Noses, and Akimbo and most recently was an office manager at a local law firm. She and her husband, Keith, enjoy exploring Nantucket’s beaches and trails. Diana fluently speaks English, Lithuanian and Russian.
Tandi Harimon, Administrative Assistant (email@example.com). Tandi moved to Nantucket from Nebraska on a Sunday in 2004. By Wednesday she had begun her career at Cyrus Peirce Middle School and made Nantucket her home. For the following 19 years she loved working with Nantucket’s children and families through varying capacities and volunteer work. She has served on the boards of Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention, Nantucket’s Distinguished Young Women Scholarship Program, and Friends of Nantucket Public Schools. In 2012 she was named a Nantucket Advocate for Children. Tandi studied Human Development at Lesley University. She and her family enjoy boating, beach days, walking their dog through Nantucket’s beautiful trails, and cheering on the Whaler sports teams.
Camden Palm, Data and Outreach Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). On a summer day in 2011, Camden arrived on Nantucket for a family day trip, and accidentally biked the Polpis loop… little did she know she would move here ten years later. Camden grew up in Southern California and earned a degree in Environmental Studies and Statistics from UC Santa Barbara (UCSB). It was at UCSB where she cultivated her drive for community-focused engagement. After graduating, she worked on Catalina Island as an Instructor and Assistant Director for the Catalina Environmental Leadership Program. In this program, she taught students about the island’s ecosystems and aimed to foster a connection to their environment.
In 2021 Camden moved from one coast to another to start a role at the Maria Mitchell Association. She connected youth to Nantucket’s land, sea, and sky, and discovered the vast number of resources within the Nantucket community. Her exploration of these resources ultimately brought her to the Community Foundation for Nantucket. She aims to bridge database management and community outreach to reach CFN’s mission and strengthen Nantucket now and for future generations.
